I have seen first-hand the effects of burnout and mental ill-health. With a goal to help people reach their best, I made the decision to collaborate with other scientists to research the concept of resilience and performance.
Life isn't easy. It’s impossible to live deeply and not feel pain or go through times of crisis. What’s not obvious is the crucial role that pain, suffering and crisis play in the process of growth and evolution.
While some people fall apart and never make it through difficult times, many others emerge from conflict and turmoil renewed and transformed and with a new lease of life. I wanted to understand why people coped so differently.
Attending the International Society for Neuroregulation and Research, I spoke to global industry experts on the question of what resilience looks like in the brain. Understanding the neurobiological mechanisms that contribute to resilience in humans is the key to developing better-targeted interventions for strengthening resilience.
After much research and support from leading minds in the industry, I formulated an approach to determine what resilience is and how an individual can Assess it, Act upon it and thus Achieve, ultimately enhancing performance in every part of their life. This is The Resilience Factor.
