Enhancing Wellness & Resilience for Successful Life & Work (NSA)(SFC) 

Introduction

In the midst of rapid changes and unexpected crises that we face today, we need to strengthen our ability to adapt, manage and thrive in our lives and work. Being resilient – having the ability to adapt to life’s changes and crises – is the key to a healthy and productive life, whether at work or at home.

Why do some people seem to thrive so well while others fade away? The secret lies in the way we develop our intellectual, emotional and social wellness.
