Success in life is ultimately determined by our response to hardship and failure. Your time in this webinar is a terrific investment in yourself says Joseph Grenny, co-author of Crucial Conversations, a New York Times best seller. Beyond Surviving will help you transform survival mode into a thriving and more fulfilling existence.

Overcome the tendency to stay linked to your troubles and stop feeling like you're still fighting for your life long after the actual threat has passed. Release the survival mentality and embrace the opportunity to use these hardships to heal, grow, and help others learn from your experience.

Course Goal:
The goal of this webinar is to help individuals increase personal and business performance by understanding the difference between survivors and thrivers. Everyone goes through stress filled situations and surviving these events is our natural response. However, going beyond surviving makes the difference to create the life you want out of the life you have.

Learning Objectives

As a result of this program, you will learn the essential steps for doing more than just surviving in this life and discover how to rethink situations in order to create a better life. Based on the authors' own personal experiences and those of others, this webinar explores:

  • Identify and understand the difference between surviving and thriving.
  • Explore and learn to tune out negative self-talk and wrong thinking.
  • Recognize and gain insight to the four key behaviors of surviving and thriving.
  • Explore how to "put on" courage in crisis.
  • Identify the unexpected winds of change.
  • Explore how to recover and bounce back better than ever.

Lots of anecdotal points. I was hoping for a research-based approach on the topic, such as mindfulness-based stress reduction, CBT, etc. "There are two types of people in this world: those who see the glass half full and those who see the glass half empty; the player vs. the winner; the director or the actor ..." If we're going to make comparisons based on dichotomies, there would be countless types of people in the world.

This was an unusual course -- I expected a bit more about COVID-19, but it really was general pep talk oriented. Not what I expected, but an interesting motivational course.

One word- Interesting? This course is general motivational info, not necessarily related to COVID. There were a couple of good stories:)
