Performance environments today, whether on the field of a competitive sports game or at the board room of a Fortune 500 company, are often uncertain, complex, volatile, and demanding. Whether you are overcoming adverse conditions in the stock market or you get passed over for a promotion, many scenarios could threaten to derail your mood, focus, and performance. Resilience is fundamental to successfully navigating those inevitable challenges in sports, business and life.
During this Emerging Women Power Boost, Dr. Leah Lagos will identify four strategies to help you cultivate resilience and perform at your peak during times of uncertainty and challenge. Dr. Lagos will ask questions like, “how do you train your mind to become more resilient,” and “what specific physiological strategies can build resilience during critical performance moments.” She will also address matters such as how sleep impacts your ability to be resilient as well as recommend specific cell phone apps for training resilience in between critical moments. With more than two decades of combined experience working with athletes around the world, musicians, artists, doctors, and business professionals, Dr. Lagos will teach how deliberate, intentional efforts to cultivate resilience can help performers achieve success.
