In the face of work and life challenges, there are three distinct possible long-term outcomes including harm, resilience, and growth. In some cases, people can experience positive change because of overcoming challenges and crises, as expressed in the aphorism “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Dr. Ken Nowack will help us understand how resilience and growth occur as a set of personality and evidence-based personality traits, lifestyle practices and specific habits/behaviors that characterize such hardy individuals, and the leadership practices that can enhance a trusting, psychologically safe, and a positive mental health culture.
