Quick Bytes: Bouncing Back, Bouncing Forward: Resourcing Ourselves for Resilience

You may have heard that resilience is about “bouncing back” after an experience of failure or adversity, but did you know that you can “bounce” forward?

Additionally, we will learn the importance of having a growth mindset AND opportunity mindset when facing stress which together build our failure tolerance, a key ingredient in resilience.
