The Seven Spheres of Resilience

How does a skyscraper survive an earthquake?

Speaker: Karsten Drath

Resilience has been named as one of the most relevant skills of highly successful people when it comes to making a difference in today's business world. The key is to get back up on your feet when "life hits you with a brick on the head". Resilience is what enables a greater capacity to act constructively when faced with today's personal and business pressures, crises and change. It also enables us to emerge from adversity with renewed strength and vigor.

Karsten Drath will introduce the audience to the model of "Seven Spheres of Resilience" and bring it to life through several exercises and activities. The audience will walk away with a strong understanding of the resilience concept as well as the ability to apply resilience interventions during coaching processes and any other situations.
