Is Resilience a Valuable Skill?
Resilience development became a mandatory topic in CRM training after the German Wings crash in 2015. This presentation will look into: What is Resilience and are we able to train it? What happens when we are faced with adversity? Is there a connection to stress? How does this show in the daily operation, and what can we do to manage these challenges.
