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 be intentional about practicing gratitude and building their emotional intelligence.

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