This season, I’m partnering with other Dare To Lead Certified Facilitators to explore important leadership topics and ways we can improve connection in the workplace.

This month, I met with Kathy Ball-Toncic of Boston, MA and we tackled the concept of Resilience. In an interesting turn, we started with what resilience is not and talked about burnout, self care, psychological safety and empathy.

We discuss how having a sense of purpose can build our resilience and how accountability and self compassion are equal partners in our resilience practice.

I know you will enjoy this conversation as much as I did!
