Building Resilience: How to Move Forward in the Face of Adversity

Stefan Danis, the CEO and Chief Talent Officer at Mandrake (a talent management organization), recently gave a powerful talk about resilience in the face of adversity – a topic we know can hit close to home for an individual with ADHD – and how stepping outside of our own boundaries will prepare you to deal with bigger challenges that life throws at you.

The talk was part of TEDxToronto, which we posted a blog about not too long ago, and we thought it deserved its own post.

When confronted by his own adversity, Stefan’s version of stepping outside of his comfort zone was to enter the Gobi March having never run even close to a marathon in his life. Never heard of it? Click here to see for yourself what this “‘march” entails (hint: it is a 250 kilometer footrace through the Gobi Desert over 7 days…think about that for a second).

While you may not be interested in stretching your own boundaries to that extent, the video of his talk is well worth a look, if anything to hear about his experience during the race. At best, perhaps it will even inspire you to find your own version of the Gobi – something that will challenge you and push your boundaries beyond what you’ve ever thought possible. Because, as Stefan says, “that’s where the lessons get learned”.
