The 12-Step Process for Resilience in Business and Life Course Outline
Why is the Art of Resilience more important today than ever before?
Life is far more complicated than it has ever been before, and it has multiple priorities and challenges that often conflict with what we have to do from day to day to be effective. We have designed an extensive Resilience Program that takes into account the new levels of stress, worry and mental health issues that have developed because of the exponential growth in the demands on children, parents, teachers, students, school administration, managers, employees and a nearly endless list of other groups within 21st century society.
We see the increases in bullying, alcohol and drug addiction, anxiety, depression, suicide, poverty, violence and homelessness, and it brings home everyone needs to be trained in how to adapt to disappointment, distress and adversity in their life journey. These twists and turns should not define us and lead us down a path that may destroy us. We have choices! We are going to guide you into seeing these for yourself. We see some people blossom and grow after adversity (survivor), and others shrink and decline (victim). It is all to do with your perspective of yourself and the world around you.
Are you a Survivor or a Victim? We can transform you into a resilient survivor who can deal with difficulties, stressful circumstances and adversity in life or business. Contact Suzi today.

Below you will see 3 of the Steps outlined
Step 1 – Mastering your Mind for Success
Step 2 – Problem-Solving Effectiveness
“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.” – Albert Einstein
This module considers how our thoughts and actions create our reality. Even in the case of natural disasters and horrific events, how we think about them and how we act has a great influence on how we endure and survive them. Our ability to problem-solve determines if we act as a survivor or a victim. The situation could be ill health, an accident, a toxic relationship, social media influence, pornography, crime or obsessions with money, status, our appearance or sex.
Could it be holding you back from achieving your own greatness in any way?
“The fear of being different prevents most people from seeking new ways to solve their problems.” – Robert Kiyosaki
Step 3 – Self Actualization
So, what does it mean to be “self-actualized?” Self-actualized people are those who are fulfilled and doing all they are capable of.
Does this sound like you? Do you want to be like this?
The growth of self-actualization (Maslow, 1962) refers to the need for personal growth and discovery that is present throughout a person’s life. For Maslow, a person is always ‘becoming’ and never remains static in these terms. simplypsychology.org
Understand who you are:
- Understand who I am.
- Learn to accept myself for who I am (faults and all).
- Accept my current circumstances vs. being comfortable and complaining about them.
- Set some goals to work towards for where I want to be in one year, two years, five years and ten years.
- Work out what my end goals for being the greatest version of myself and becoming happy and fulfilled.
From history, “Mahatma Gandhi, Viktor Frankl, and Nelson Mandela serve as examples of people who each personify real self-actualization. At risk of his life, Mahatma Gandhi utilized civil disobedience for purposes of freedom, Viktor Frankl was a holocaust survivor who never relinquished his grasp of life’s meaning, and Nelson Mandela maintained an attitude of meaning in life even while he was imprisoned.” (Psychology Today Website, 05.19.19)
Self-Actualization links with emotional intelligence and problem solving effectiveness on the purposeful path towards Resilience.
