Developing Resiliency: 6 Powerful Strategies for Women to Thrive at Work

Thursday, August 25, 2016 1:00pm - 2:00pm EDT  
Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Lynn Schmidt, Director, Global Executive & Leadership Development and Kevin Nourse, Nourse Leadership Strategies

A recent study by McKinsey found that resiliency is the most important attribute that women need for career success in the 21st century. Why is that?

Women bring exceptional talents to the work they do, yet often face struggles to achieve fulfillment. While women make up roughly half of the world’s workforce, the vast majority of senior leaders across industry sectors are male. Women need to anticipate, navigate, learn, and grow from the challenges they encounter for career success. The ability to maintain your resiliency and thrive in the midst of adversity is an intentional choice. When women consciously make that choice, they are better equipped to be transformed by work-related challenges.

Every day we encounter challenges when we are working that test our ability to be resilient, to be strong and overcome difficulties, and to thrive, not just survive. Some days the challenges are small: a computer problem or vendor issue. Other days the challenges are large: losing a job or a conflict with a colleague. To overcome these challenges, we need to proactively build our ability to be resilient.

During this webcast, the presenters will introduce the Resiliency Framework, which was developed from extensive research and interviews. The framework consists of six strategies that help women thrive in the face of career challenges. While the framework is focused on women, many of the strategies can be applied across genders. The strategies are also applicable to all people developers who work with women, including coaches and HR professionals.

Attend this session to find out which resiliency strategy you need to strengthen to increase your career satisfaction and viability. You will take a brief assessment to determine your resiliency needs, and you will leave with at least one action that you can take immediately to increase your resiliency. By using the six resiliency strategies, you can create a career defined by growth, success, and satisfaction.
