What is Resilience, Really?
Challenge: Acknowledge the Feelings
What loss have you experienced recently? Reflect on it and how you feel about it by asking yourself these questions that you can think through or write your responses:
How am I feeling? (Fine isn’t a feeling. 😊)
What thoughts or feelings do I have that I haven’t articulated?
How have I allowed myself to grieve this loss?
Career Grief When No One Died
Challenge: Identify the Loss
What is your most recent career change? How has this change impacted you? What adjustments are you making to stay committed to your aspirations despite the challenge? Today’s challenge is to write down who you are without using descriptors connected to your career or professional expertise. Who are you?

Don’t Should Yourself
Challenge: Be OK with Being Uncomfortable
Discomfort is an invitation for growth. How are you embracing discomfort? List what is inside and outside your comfort zone. Once you have a solid list, pick 1 thing that makes you uncomfortable and share it with someone else. If you’re really up for a challenge, make a plan to execute on that discomfort!
Communicating with Empathy

What conversation have you been putting off? Use the mini course inside the toolkit to think through your empathy conversation. Then set a deadline on your calendar to have the conversation. You got this!
Managing Your Mindset

Your beliefs help you to navigate the tension between what you know and how you feel. What are your guiding beliefs that help you take your thoughts captive to reimagine as you journey forward? Once you think through your core beliefs, list your top 4 personal values.
Self-Care is Resilience
Challenge: Be What You Need
How are your prioritizing self-care every day? What does self-care look like within the context of your career? What or who might you need to say no to in order to say yes to yourself? Make a commitment to your self-care this week and share how you will be what you need with a colleague or friend.
Supporting Others Through Loss
Challenge: Share the Load
Sharing our story can be a powerful way to support others through loss. How are you leaning in to vulnerability to share your experiences with loss that could help someone else share their load. Think of one person or one way you can share your story of thriving through. Share your story this week!
