Packed with practical exercises and inspirational stories, this groundbreaking, research-based book of 314 pages will guide you step-by-step to develop inner strength and realistic optimism. It’s the formula to not only survive but thrive in the face of life’s challenges.

This book teaches practical tools to live in alignment with your values. It shows how to prevent stress negatively affecting your work, colleagues and family. In the face of stressful life and work challenges you will be able to:
• remain calm and healthy
• reduce worry
• experience more hope and optimism
• bounce back stronger

The book is divided into three parts. The first part covers how resilience works, the resilience building blocks, principles and steps, and includes a personal resilience questionnaire.

Part two covers seven Principles of Resilience with stories, tools and exercises on how each can be improved:
• connect to your meaning in life
• use your strengths
• maintain perspective
• generate positive feelings
• be realistically positive
• persevere by being open minded and flexible
• reach to others

Part three applies the Building Resilience Principles and tools to work and home settings. The work section outlines several strategies with practical exercises to create resilient teams. The home section contains 24 activities to enhance and reinforce children’s resilience.

The author, Rod Warner, has over 20 years experience in the field of performance improvement and has researched and published in the field of resilience. He runs the internationally acclaimed Building Resilience workshops. Delegates in the workshop say the exercises and tools in this book changed their lives.
