3 Secrets of resilient people - A TED talk by Dr Lucy Hone
In my continued research into suitable resources for support leaders through my mental fitness programme I came across this fantastic TED talk on resilience by Dr Lucy Hone. She is a Director of the New Zealand Institute of Wellbeing and Resilience, a research associate, best selling author and contributor to Psychology Today so is pretty well versed on this subject.
In this talk, Lucy powerfully shares her own emotional story and what she has found to be the three key strategies for developing the capacity to be brave and overcome what ever challenges lay ahead. Listening to this talk, I was blown away by her courage and capacity to learn from her own tragedy and to then have the strength to share her learning with others. A really powerful talk and found that her comment "adversity doesn't discriminate" really resonated and got me thinking of just how important it is to be prepared for when adversity inevitably does strike. Being self-resourced, energy managed and having a toolkit at your fingertips to refer to, won't stop adversity from striking, but will better equip you to deal with it when it does.
This is such a heartfelt talk with some key messages and learning that I felt it was really important to share it with you.
