Presentation Description

Why Bounce Back When You Can Learn to Bounce Forward?

Your technical skills helped you secure your first job and maybe your first promotion. However, these skills do not guarantee your success beyond these positions, nor do they help you secure your next one.  If you aspire to succeed, you need to consider the social and emotional foundations of leadership. You need to understand the essential elements of SELF-Leadership and how to move through resilience to ultra-resilience.

This skill allows you not only to bounce back from setbacks and challenges, but to use this energy to propel you forward from setbacks to make you stronger, better.  We call this Ultra-resilience… beyond resilience.

In this presentation, you will:

  • Discover a fast, ever-changing environment to become mentally and emotionally stronger.
  • Learn how to uncover the thinking habits and cognitive biases that hold you back.
  • Utilize the principles and practices of neuro-axiology to bounce forward (not just bounce back) from adversity.
  • Discover how to master your “thinking” strengths or cognitive assets to become Ultraresilient and use chaos and uncertainty to grow stronger.
