Resilience: What to Do When Innovation Doesn’t Work as Planned, with Dawn Dillon

Failure is a critical component of any ultimate success. Often referred to as grit, resilience is the key to reaching that ultimate success by developing the art of picking yourself up after failure and persevering. This webinar will explore some of the research on resilience as well as offer some ways to develop this skill with some deliberate, intentional tools.
