I elbowed my way into the gym this morning, mentally prepared for the "Resolution Crunch" - the inevitable flood of people taking a first stab at their New Year's promise to get in shape. The gym was almost at capacity with at least double the usual Saturday morning attendance. I jumped on the last unoccupied elliptical, and as I began my warm-up I thought about how long it would take for this year's resolution crowd to thin out. It's typically by late January or early February at the latest.
I’ve been researching, developing and delivering resilience training for 20 years and consider myself to be a subject matter expert. But sometimes being too close to our subject matter gets in the way of our ability to communicate it clearly to others. So I’m always looking for ways to talk about resilience in ways that people can better relate to and understand.
