The Resilience Advantage
by Richard Citrin, Ph.D., MBA and Alan J. Weiss, Ph.D.
For 70 years, psychologists, wellness experts, and physicians have been teaching people that they can manage the stress in their lives. They have been wrong. Over the past 15 years, there has been a revolution in how business, communities, and governments around the globe address challenge and adversity. Their goal has shifted from trying to manage these events to instead recognizing that we have to build resilient systems that help us prepare for them, navigate through them in real time, and bounce-back or better still, bounce forward.
The Resilience Advantage takes these ideas and those from neuropsychology, education, the arts, sports, and positive psychology and puts them into practical and effective strategies for individuals and organizations that struggle with the day to-day stresses of today s complex and challenging workplace. To work towards resilience each of us must understand and accept that our lives are filled with challenges that may be, at time difficult, but in the end help us to be stronger and more successful people.
The Resilience Advantage will show you how you can better prepare for your stressful challenges, address them with more grace and ease as they are happening and finally learn strategies to use those adversities to help you propel your success and the success of your organization forward.
