About the Webinar

Resilience is our ability to bounce back from adversity — an important skill in times of change or hardship. But for leaders to remain positive, set a direction, and light the path for their teammates, they must start by practicing gratitude.

While many may view the act of giving thanks as an outward expression that primarily touches others, research has found that gratitude also leads to personal resilience. Join us in this webinar to understand why gratitude is at the heart of our 8 resilience practices that relate to enhanced social, physical, mental, and emotional outcomes.
