What is Resilience?

Resilience is the ability to reduce the magnitude and/or duration of disruptive events. The effectiveness of a resilient personality or enterprise depends upon its ability to anticipate, absorb, adapt to, and/or rapidly recover. Resilience informs our quality of life, our overall success and our well-being.

The most encouraging observation I've made over all these years is that resilience is a strength most of us can develop with thought and practice.

Why Resilience?

Resilience is fundamental to successfully transiting change and crisis. It is also essential for maintaining direction and integrity during times of growth and opportunity. Quite simply, resilience is the optimal quality of the human spirit.

Resilient individuals handle challenges more adeptly. Resilient organizations adjust and thrive in times of uncertainty and setback.

Resilience means you experience, you feel, you fail, you hurt. You fall. But, you keep going.​

―Yasmin Mogahed​

How Do You Build Resilience?

Resilience is developed through life’s experiences and conditions, and we all possess resilience in some degree or another. It can also be learned, trained, and instilled by knowledge and action.

Meet Our Team

Among our Hatherleigh authors we have identified a select group of resilience trainers and educators who address the subject of resilience in a uniquely productive way, adding value and real skills. These individuals are available for presentations, training and media outreach. Each brings their own perspective to mastering resilience from the four domains: emotional well being and regulation, physical health, character strengths, and the externals – relationships, workplace issues, and the other conditions in our lives.

Resilience is based on compassion for ourselves as well as compassion for others.
