Obstacles will either stall progress or propel you to profits – but the question is, how do you actually master resilience? The Resiliency Ninja formula, that’s how! Resilience can be learned and mastered.

I’ll speak out loud the conversations and thoughts most people leave inside their heads – such as the Internal Messenger of B.S. and other not-so-nice (yet highly relatable) confessions from building a career during a personal decade of hell. Despite multiple surgeries, chronic nerve pain, additional injuries, deaths of people close to me and all the compounded issues that came from those experiences, I still believe the best in life can rise from the worst circumstances, when you embrace your inner Resiliency Ninja.

Conflicting priorities, rapid change, and unending demands on your time and talents can cause burn out, frustration and a loss of productivity.

Success is not saved for innately resilient people like professional athletes and mountain climbers. Resilience is a skill that can be nurtured and perfected by anyone eager to embrace all life has to offer. With the right formula, you can hone your inner strength and rise stronger, and more successful than before, no matter what challenges you face.

The greatest asset in your professional life is your network. Connecting and building meaningful professional relationships with people from various sectors and within your firm who have access to different resources and wisdom, can be a challenging obstacle. Anything you want to accomplish is only one connection away, but overloaded task lists, heavy work demands, and comfort zones can mean that relationship development is reactive at best, and, at worst, non-existent. With the right tools, you can overcome this challenge in a fraction of the time it would take others.

Allison will reveal the secrets that the most connected people know to evolve and solidify profitable relationships that lead to opportunities, instead of just being busy. You will learn what it takes to inspire trust while moving a connection from being just known to a loyal professional relationship.
