ESADE Alumni Careers
invites you to a flash session about the advantages of a resilient mind for managers and executives and how to develop one in order to handle a VUCA setting. This talk will explain how mindfulness can strengthen the brain circuits that facilitate resilience and boost other circuits related to wellbeing.


Participants will work on:

•    How to cultivate individual and group resilience
•    The impact on decision taking
•    The main sources of resilience
•    Sense of coherence model and resistance model.

Participants will also practice mindfulness, which can then be used as a platform for exploring everyday strategies, learn how to develop quality control for thinking in order to be in the zone, and also how to train the mind in a be-do mode. The workshop will end with personal training plans for developing these skills.
