The one thing that differentiates people who live amazing, stratospheric lives is resilience- their ability to bounce back and thrive from life changing times.
This keynote introduces the resilient rules to engage the fear and stress of disruptive changes and provides the forward momentum needed to outperform, outmaneuver, and outlast challenges that would otherwise mire others.
