How to be more resilient with Stacey Copas | Episode 147

What impact does the way we think have on the way we act, react and ‘the way things simply are’…. AND what changes could we then create if we could adjust the way we think?


What if we could change the way we think to see obstacles as opportunity, and where problems arise, see them instead as possibilities? 


Let’s stop asking ‘what if’ and start exploring those changes we CAN make. I’m so honoured and blessed to have Stacey Copas, dubbed as ‘Queen of Resilience’ join us in this episode as we explore resilience, perspective and being in the moment. 


A truly inspiring person, Stacey has used her life experience and personal philosophies to work with individuals and organisations who want themselves and their people to be more engaged, resilient and productive so that they can grow through uncertainty and change. A keynote speaker, author and coach that has never been deterred from succeeding, Stacey helps people shift their perspective and uses a framework that she reverse engineered to turn things around when things don’t go to plan.


Tune into this episode as Stacey helps us to alter the way we think; differentiating perseverance and resilience, discussing perspective and personal responsibility as tools to overcome challenges, gratitude as a tool for building resilience, and the power of bringing ourselves back into the moment.
