This program focuses on the reality of bounce back and that it takes planning, patience, practice and productivity. Each of these skills take attention and time to develop. You will hear what makes up each skill and resources to strengthening them. Planning is under rated. The time it takes to handle unexpected situations was done up front, so there is less to do in a pinch. Patience has so many facets, we start with self first. Practice is how we refine our skills – regardless of our industry and role. Productivity is the impact of our action.
Starting the conversation…
- Bounce back sounds like it is something fast, and it can be with the right skills.
- Bounce back is not easy. It is not instantaneous. It takes work. Work takes effort. It takes support. Support takes a network. It takes learning. Learning is lifelong.
