Resilience Dialogues – June 11th, 2021Jenny Abercrombie
Resilience involves the ability to handle stress, bounce back, and move forward in life. The challenges of the last year highlight the need for individual, organizational, and collective resilience. We’ve learned a lot about how to build resilience and improve your ability to deal with all kinds of stress. These dialogues are open forums to explore resilience, all the things that cause stress in our lives, relationships, and more. Please join us for these monthly interactive sessions where everyone, including family members, is welcome. They will be held the second Friday of the month at 9am Pacific Time.
