• Resilience

    Resilience is the ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they find a way to rise from the ashes.

    The obstacle is the way

    Researchers have identified some of the factors that make someone resilient. Some of these factors are: a positive attitude, optimism, the ability to regulate emotions, and the ability to see failure as a form of helpful feedback. 


    Even after misfortune, resilient people are blessed with such an outlook that they are able to change course and soldier on.

  • Resilience = NEW FIELD OF STUDY

    There are many recent scientific publications about this topic.

Evert has worked at academic research organizations such as The Institute for Scientific Analysis and The Public Research Institute focusing on social and cognitive research. He currently works as a coach for UnCollege, an educational startup based in SF. He thrives in making his workshops engaging and mixing academic research with real world applications.


    For this session, he will be discussing the main tenets of emotional intelligence/ how to identify and regulate your emotions.


    Feeling confident rather than anxious can mean the difference between success and failure. Some of us tend to cringe at the idea of networking, pitching presentations, or having difficult conversations. Contrary to popular belief, this is a trait that you can learn and that can be massively beneficial to your personal and professional life. This workshop will take a pragmatic approach by mixing research with engaging exercises.


    Participants learned how to:


    - Develop your habits to maximize your emotional intelligence.

    - Honestly assess your own character to better impact others.


    - See these lessons in action, and cultivate your individual grounded-ness.


    Expect this workshop to be highly interactive -- two parts experience, one part content
