The Growth Equation Guide to Resilience

What is resilience and how can we develop it?

We all experience difficult and trying times. Stress and setbacks are a part of life. Resilience is the capacity to bounce back from adversity. Resilience and its close cousin, toughness, are often praised, but seldom do we take the time to understand what they actually are and how to systematically develop them.
