Speaker #2 Abstract: “The Path Towards Resilience


We all experience hurdles, but not all of us bounce back equally fast or with a renewed energy. Because not all individuals are sufficiently resilient, and the big secret is that you are not born resilient, you become resilient. This presentation will share the insights developed by Maria Angela Capello from her own resilience journey in three continents, and her research about what works in boosting resilience for individuals and organizations. Practical indicators to assess your own resilience, and that of corporate organizations will be provided, sharing examples from the oil and gas industry. The lecture is grounded on the acclaimed book “Learned in the Trenches – Insights on Leadership and Resilience”, pushing the edge on what are the characteristics of resilient individuals and resilient organizations, and sharing what works for your own path towards resilience.  The highlight is that you will be able to take away fresh perspectives and tools to overcome stress, failure or disappointment, so common at life and work.
