http://www.julieannsullivan.com/the-power-of-resilience-lauren-schieffer/

 

All of us face trials and setbacks on a daily basis. Whether it’s a minor problem or a major tragedy, one quality will help you deal with these setbacks successfully: resilience. My guest today helps us understand why we need to be resilient and how to put it into practice every day.

I’m thrilled to introduce you to Lauren Schieffer, a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) who works with leaders and organizations who want to go from successful to significant. She shares some great wisdom from her father, “The Colonel,” on how a setback is merely a setup for a comeback. She also shows how resilience has played a huge part in helping her overcome personal challenges. Lauren’s story will have you cheering and ready to handle with whatever life throws at you!

Lauren’s Bio: Lauren Schieffer works with leaders and organizations who want to go from successful to SIGNIFICANT. Able to relate to and energize everyone from the custodial staff to C-Level executives, Lauren has spent her career pinpointing characteristics of significance, how to understand differing communication styles, and how to prevent and manage conflict from the High Road. She delivers inspirational and relevant content, infusing humor and interaction. As a recovering bulimic and assault survivor, Lauren is the embodiment of the reality that what happens to you in your life is not as important as how you choose to respond to what happens to you. It's all about choice.

 

You’ll discover: 

  • How Lauren describes her superpower
  • The benefits of being resilient.
  • A powerful truth: when you decide to be resilient, nothing and no one can knock you down and keep you down but you.
  • How Lauren used resiliency to deal with the challenges of being a sexual assault victim, in addition to her struggle with bulimia nervosa.
  • Why you don’t have to undergo a huge tragedy to use resilience.
  • How resilience applies in business situations.
  • How Lauren was able to help one company’s difficult employee learn to communicate respectfully and manage conflict.
  • Why you should avoid words like “always” and “never.”
  • Two actions you can take today to create more resiliency in your life.

 

4 things Lauren does to create more resiliency in her life:

  1. In any life situation, break down your goals into manageable chunks.
  2. Have a plan for achieving your goals.
  3. Focus on daily effort, not on results.
  4. Change what you say when you talk to yourself.
