Program Benefits:

  • Harness positive thinking and grow resilience in your subordinates
  • Feel a renewed connection to your job and organization
  • Increase ability to respond to workplace adversities and challenges

More than 30 years of research shows that our thinking styles—habits of thinking we develop about ourselves, our world and our future—directly affect how we respond to challenges and opportunities. These thinking styles often can lead us away from the success we work so hard to achieve, sapping our resilience at work and home.

What are the secrets to resilience? What are the thinking styles that enhance resilience? How can you avoid the traps that diminish personal resilience? This highly interactive, skills-based program will teach you how to capitalize on your resilience and bolster its effectiveness. You will identify your own thinking styles and how they may be helping or hurting your performance. And you will learn a series of practical skills for improved resilience and success.

This course is part of the Executive Pathways series and is required for the Master of Science in Leadership. MS-Leadership course credit for Resilience in Leadership can be earned via Executive Leadership for America.
