A Leader's Guide to Personal Resilience:
Building Your Capacity to Contribute in Challenging Times
We live in extraordinary times. New dynamics, accelerating exponentially in complexity and consequence, are challenging the basic structures that shaped our lives. We need leaders who can make bold commitments, stay centered and calm in the midst of intensity, and lead the way toward a more sustainable, harmonious, and just world.
Presence-Based Resilience® Intensives explore the power of resilience in a world buffeted by change. This three-day seminar addresses the challenge of resilience explicitly and directly. You will have the opportunity to apply cutting edge tools, perspectives, and strategies to the challenge of cultivating your own resilience and capacity to lead. Workshops are built on a proven foundation of six mutually reinforcing elements central to building and maintaining a sense of possibility, perspective, and optimism.
Build resilient, resourceful leaders with the capacity to lead and sustain change.

This dynamic and experiential workshop engages you in self-assessment, individual and group exercises, peer coaching sessions, and skill practices interspersed with group discussions and brief presentations. You will learn practical tools to manage yourself and build resilience, and integrate these into an action plan for take-home application.
The three-day format includes working with application and live cases, peer coaching, coaching by faculty, development of robust take-home resilience strategies, and the exploration of each resilience element from multiple perspectives and learning modalities.
Most importantly, because the development of resilience takes place through experience, the seminar design is interactive, physical, and highly engaging.
