“It’s your reaction to adversity, not adversity itself that determines how your life’s story will develop.” - Dieter F. Uchtdorf

We live in uncertain times. Whether we like it or not adversity is part of life and overcoming it is one of the biggest hurdles we face.

So how do we deal with it? How is it that some people bounce back from adversity and misfortune while others fall apart? Have you ever felt like things were stacked against you in life?

Working in non-profits with the challenges faced, all of us can benefit from becoming more resilient — better able to face our struggles, recover, and adapt. When we resolve to confront and overcome it, we become expert at dealing with it and consequently triumph over our day-to-day struggles.

Join us to learn how to deal with and overcome adversity, to build character, resilience, discipline and perseverance in tough times.

Learning Outcome:

• Develop an understanding on advancing your natural advantage
• Learn how personal values connect to motivation to overcome adversities
• Learn how to balance confidence with positive attitude, passion and determination
• Improve resilience quotient to overcome challenges in life
• Develop a personal philosophy of leadership in life to champion for causes that you believe in
• Learn how to turn setbacks into comebacks with the support of family and friends
• Articulate and appreciate the advices of an Olympian for life success
• Be empowered to create an inclusive and supportive environment for people of all walks of life to succeed
