Numerous recent studies have shown that Americans are currently less happy and more stressed than ever before. We are overworked, under paid, sleep deprived, and disengaged. And this is completely understandable. We face scary issues such as unemployment, political unease, terrorism, and health concerns on a daily bases. This is exactly why it is perhaps more important now than ever before that we all work on building our resilience.
In this episode we interview consultant and executive coach, Doug Hensch, and we discuss his brand new book, Positively Resilient: 5 1/2 Secrets to Beat Stress, Overcome Obstacles, and Defeat Anxiety. Doug shares with us lessons learned over 20 years of experience that can help you increase your resilience, so that you can grow in the face of change, and thrive in the midst of adversity.
