OTT webinar – Keeping positive in the face of adversity
Grit is what psychologists call the ability to maintain momentum and goal-focus when you face challenges. Resilience is the psychological strength to manage the emotional impact of testing situations. Discovering how to build grit and resilience is one of the greatest achievements of positive psychology. And it’s never been more important than now as we face a perfect storm of stress factors re our job, finances, clients, family…
We are either overwhelmed by such times or achieve growth from them, often going through both experiences in that order. But we don’t have to put up with the discomfort first, we now know how to get growth without it.
Join positive psychologist and bestselling author Graham Keen for our 30 minute webinar in which he will explain how resilience is built and strengthened. He’ll cover easy to master scientifically proven techniques that have for example halved stress, anxiety, and PTSD in the US Army. Learn not just how to survive the current times, but to grow through them and become happier personally, more effective professionally, and to acquire or recover a sense of being in control of your own life.
