What I learned in the Resilience Circle is so critical for my own mental and emotional well-being. Understanding my own “go-to reactions” to events and people around me and then knowing how to quickly evaluate and center myself is so applicable to both my personal and professional relationships. I have seen how my ability to center myself in times of high-energy or high-stress times makes me a more effective leader for my team. I believe every business should invest in strengthening the resilience skills of their teams to help build a healthy, collaborative organization.
