About this Event

HAPPINESS V. RESILIENCE: Our unrelenting quest for lasting happiness is leading us and our families astray. We anchor our goals in a fleeting feeling that sets us up for failure. Research shows lasting success and contentment aren't about happiness after all - truly thriving in today's world requires resilience. The good news is that resilience is a skill we learn, not something we're born with or without. We know resilience is important but we have not been trained to access it in our day-to-day life. How we actually become resilient is left out of the conversation. Until now. In this talk, Dr. Montminy will explain what it takes to create a resilient mindset for ourselves and our children, how to shift perceptions, and deliver tools we can use to flourish.
