This week, it was my great pleasure to bring the expertise of Dr. Carole Pemberton to The Doubters. Our topic for discussion was A GUIDE TO RESILIENCE.
Carole is an executive coach, coaching supervisor, speaker, and the author of Resilience: A Practical Guide for Coaches.
We discussed how resilience only really becomes important when we lose it and Carole gives lots of ideas about what to do in those difficult moments of despair, which are so common in the challenge of working with self-doubt. We talk about the importance of hope and we focus upon three (out of the eight) contributors to resilience that Carole has identified; realistic positivity, emotional control, and proactivity.
I share examples from my own life where I lost my resilience and also how what I once thought was resilience was actually fragility!
If, like so many of us right now, you have found yourself in that challenging space where your resilience has abandoned you, then you will find this conversation extremely valuable!
“Resilience is the capacity to remain flexible in our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours when faced with a life disruption, or extended periods of pressure, so that we emerge from difficulty stronger, wiser, and more able.”
