Surprises are the new normal; resilience is the new skill.

Life can bring all kinds of stressors, including divorce, the death of a loved one, relentless job and family demands, or a career setback.

Unfortunately, most people don’t have the coping skills they need to meet these challenges.

There are specific action steps you can take to speed your emotional recovery in times of stress. Fifty years of research in the psychological sciences has given us a good grasp of what makes someone resilient.

Resilience is your ability to adapt and bounce back when things don’t go as planned. Resilient people not only survive after a setback, they come back stronger and wiser.

Fortunately, we now know that resilience can be developed. Scientists who study stress say it’s important to think of resilience as an emotional muscle that can be strengthened at any time.

You can get access to my comprehensive resilience-building tools and resources TODAY.

In this coaching intensive, I will help you develop mental toughness and provide you with a toolkit of practical strategies that can be implemented immediately to improve your wellbeing.

The program will help you:
  • understand what resilience is
  • develop skills to create a resilient mindset
  • manage anxiety, fear, and focus when you’re in the “eye of the storm”
  • face challenges with more clarity and positivity
  • increase your self-awareness to control over-thinking and worry

Here’s How It Works:

Once a week, you and I will have a one-hour phone (or Skype) call. We’ll start by getting clear on where you are and where you want to go.  We’ll examine what’s working and what’s not.  I will help you determine exactly what to do next.

After each call, you will be given specific tasks and assignments to focus on for the following week.  The key here is focus – you can achieve anything, but not everything all at once.  I will help you prioritize and select the right tasks that will give you the best results in the shortest amount of time.

We will create a step-by-step plan for overcoming obstacles and increasing your resilience in the coming year.  We will address which things you should be spending your time and energy on, and which things are sucking the life out of you.

I will follow up with you regularly to check in on your progress and keep you on track. For the entire 3 weeks, you will have my full attention, unlimited priority access to me, and exclusive accountability to discuss your progress, ask questions, and get advice.

Things turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out.
