The resilience within a labour of love
May 3, 2021
Hosted by Beth Page, Ph.D.
Learning to live in the moment, to be present. Listening. Trusting. Respecting. Honouring. These are the resilience learnings my special guest, Louise McDonald, brings into the Resilience & You conversation this week. Louise will share with us about the journey she is on, which is not her own journey, but a journey of a daughter accompanying her father on his journey. A journey many of us have been on, may currently be on, or may find ourselves on in the future. From core care teams and extended care teams, Louise will share insights to how they have found an approach that centres her father and allows all involved to come from a place of love, transparency and trust. In episode 9 of Resilience & You listen in to learn how decentering ourselves, and holding spaces for others could be the exact opportunity we need to strengthen our own resilience.
Resilience & You

Resilience and You is designed for those who would like to strengthen their resilience, particularly in times of challenge and uncertainty. We interview resilient humans to learn from their stories about how resilience can be strengthened, at work and beyond. Kathryn McEwen, an organizational psychologist operating out of Australia, defines resilience as “an individual’s capacity to manage the everyday stress of work and remain healthy, rebound and learn from unexpected setbacks and prepare for future challenges proactively.” Resilience invites us to slow down, create a pause, take a breath and embrace curiosity. Resilience is currently receiving a lot of media attention. Our efforts to cultivate workplaces of belonging and performance amidst COVID-19 are yielding resilience challenges for leaders and employees alike. Resilience positively enhances our conflict handling skills, our capacity for managing everyday stressors and our capacity for navigating the many relationships we have.
