There’s no question that increasing resilience for ourselves and our colleagues has amazing benefits. It increases the ability to achieve big goals, improves the quality of relationships while protecting against depression, anxiety, and PTSD. The question is, what actually makes up resilience and how can it be developed effectively? During this session we interviewed Jurie Rossouw an Australian neuroscientist who is revolutionizing how we think about resilience.

Jurie Rossouw is the CEO of Driven, a leading AI-powered platform that assess and improves personal resilience. Having published multiple research papers in the area of the neuroscience of resilience, Jurie’s focus is on building resilience at an individual, organizational, and global level. He has consulted with large banks, airlines, education institutions, mining, and more. Projects ranged from building resilience at cultural levels, through to enhancing business resilience at a process and resource level. Most recently Jurie published Executive Resilience, a book which delves into the neuroscience of organizational cultural resilience, and how resilience will become more important as a skill to thrive in a disruptive environment. Jurie co-authored two research papers on The Predictive 6-Factor Resilience Scale, highlighting a new path to holistic resilience measurement. This work established six domains of resilience, providing a holistic and neuroscience-based view of resilience.
