From business leaders to rank and file workers, the competitive 24/7 world of heart stopping change has left many of us feeling in need of new tools to answer these questions: How do I engage more of my talent and that of the folks around me in meaningful work? What is the true meaning of the word resiliency, and how can I use it to my advantage?
