Are You Truly Resilient or Just Coping?

Speaker: Carol Putnam

Many entrepreneurs create their own business because they want to have more control over their work and their life. More control doesn't necessarily mean fewer challenges, less stress, or a better work/life balance. Most people learn how to cope to "get through" a tough time.  Coping is a short-term strategy. Being resilient is a long-term life strategy. 

In this interactive session, learn the components of resilience, assess your own resilient behaviors, and develop an action plan to shift your behavior from coping to resilient.

Carol Putnam, Ph.D., is a coach, workshop developer, and master facilitator. For more than 25 years she worked at global, hi-tech powerhouses Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, and Tektronix. During her tenure, she coached executives, led global teams, managed multiple organizational restructuring initiatives, drove leadership development programs, and cultural change efforts. She also designed and facilitated strategic planning and leadership meetings.

Carol now utilizes her global experience, education, and training to support clients as they navigate obstacles and opportunities in their professional and personal lives. An advocate of thriving over striving, her business is called: Why Strive? Thrive! 

A success catalyst, she partners with clients to help them reach their goals by providing individualized coaching plans, support, and accountability. A member of the International Coach Federation, she provides clear and actionable coaching plans and support to her clients.
