Sharing the art of resilience

26 November 2019 | Business

How to fail, bounce back & show up is the theme of this month’s edition of Future Females taking place at the Vintage Coffee Shop on Thursday evening.
In the words of Nelson Mandela, “Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”
To fail is to learn; it is a stepping stone in the journey of discovering what doesn't work, in order to pursue what DOES. And the beauty of any set back is that it builds resilience, the real key to success!
Unplanned events can have a devastating effect on small businesses. Crises such as fire, damage to stock, break-ins, theft, fraud, contractors breaking contracts, illness of key staff or IT system failure could all make it difficult or even impossible to carry out your normal day-to-day activities. At worst, this could see you losing important customers – and even going out of business altogether. But with good planning you can take steps to minimise the potential impact of a disaster - and ideally prevent it happening in the first place.
Emotional pain and sadness are common in people who have suffered major adversity or trauma in their businesses and personal lives. In fact, the road to resilience is likely to involve considerable emotional distress. Resilience is not a trait that people either have or do not have. It involves behaviours, thoughts and actions that can be learned and developed in anyone. Yet people generally adapt well over time to life-changing situations and stressful conditions. What enables them to do so? It involves resilience, an ongoing process that requires time and effort and engages people in taking a number of steps.
This month’s gathering is all resilience, featuring two incredible speakers: Tabea Boye and Adél Oosthuizen who will be sharing their stories. Also, this is the last event of the year, so don’t miss the after party!
Tickets are available via PayToday and Events Today.
