Patrick takes us along in a personal journey about how to deal with corruption and ethics in business.
Resilience is the competence to deal with challenges, changes and unexpected setbacks in a positive and meaningful way. It seems to become more and more evident that resilience is one of the key components for overcoming these challenges. Resilient people live longer and perform better in all stages of life. Being resilient helps us to remain on our feet during challenging times, it helps us to find creative solutions and to take on all the various responsibilities that we are faced with. Life is not makeable or in our control, but it is certainly within each of us to further develop our own resilience. View presentation.
