“Resilience is key to a life filled with purpose, joy and well-being.”

During her 90-minute presentation, Wendy will share how to live a resilient life. What is resilience? It is the ability to overcome adversity! Using humor, humility and real-life experiences, Wendy will address questions like, Is resilience a learned behavior or an innate characteristic? How does your mindset affect resilience and your ability to make optimal decisions? How can concepts from neuroscience help to explain how we can retrain our brain to be more resilient? Wendy blends experiences that touch all of our lives with the most current research to present a framework that has helped people from all walks of life and professional levels accelerate their performance and drive results.  This includes building a plan to manage stress, create work/life balance, improve communication skills and develop positive relationships. Wendy is an inspiring positive psychology practitioner who weaves together critical examples, expertise, and easy to apply steps that will motivate you to reach your potential and live a flourishing life.
