Resilience is something everyone can grow in over the course of their lives. It's your ability to stand up to, recover from, and adapt to episodic challenges and major disruptions in your life. Strengthening resilience requires developing a mental culture of preparedness, resourcefulness, and self-compassion in the face of adversity. Building greater resilience can help you more effectively cope with challenges at work and home, lead more effectively in the workplace and even improve your overall health.
