Key Takeaways

Do you agree or disagree? "There’s no such thing as an inherently stressful situation, workplace, or event." Listen in to learn more!

Join us for a collaborative session on the this episode of Meet the Author with Dr. Ian Snape of Frontline Mind discussing Resilience in "Design: How to Survive and Thrive in a Complex and Turbulent World " If stress is the global epidemic of the twenty-first century, then resilience is the cure. Resilience is the ability to prepare for, respond to, and adapt to incremental changes; challenging, difficult, and disruptive situations; and major upheaval or catastrophes. Resilience isn’t just the ability to tough it out; it’s dependent upon an interconnected set of skills, techniques, creative processes, and new understandings of how we think, act, and interact with our environments and each other.


  • There’s no such thing as an inherently stressful situation, workplace, or event.
  • How to appreciate and benefit from hidden information in your unconscious signals and intuitions
  • The Everest Pattern to develop your decision-making for complex, high-risk situations.
