2019 Tapia Conference

Resilience: Build the Skill

Thursday, September 19, 2019 — 4:30PM - 5:30PM


This session present the opportunity for attendees to learn and discuss the issues they face in regards with hardship and setback. Given the challenges facing scientists and engineers in the lab, office, and at home feelings of exhaustion, dissatisfaction, and unproductivity can be difficult to avoid. However, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel and strengths that can be improved. In this interactive workshop, we will discuss concrete strategies to adapt to adversity and improve resilience (i.e., accepting change, taking decisive actions and staying flexible). The attendees will be able to get tips to become more resilient and to help attendees revive and think more positively after a hardship or setback.

Presenters:
Xiomara Calderón-Colón, Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory
