This is it
This workshop is about the robust relationship between wellbeing and high performance. It is about the optimal balance of stress and how that converts to resilience in the pursuit of high value goals. It presents the four pillars of resilience: Social Resilience, Physical Resilience, Psychological Resilience and Practical Resilience.
An analogy is developed of the elite athlete: pushing boundaries of performance with very high discipline and specialized knowledge. Athletes are prone to injury because they push boundaries, so they need to be both knowledgeable and disciplined in their self-care. All this effort is worth it because they are pursuing deep satisfaction and purpose. They are also attempting to maximise ‘flow’ – the experience of complete absorption in the task at hand that is good for you both physically and psychologically (Csikszentmihalyi, 1997). In the same way, resilience requires stress and pushing boundaries in the pursuit of valued goals. It requires knowledge and applied capabilities.
