Whenever I've been asked about the number one characteristic required for success, I've often answered with “resilience.” However, it turns out that resilience isn't quite what I thought it was. In today’s episode, I speak to Dr. Marie-Hélène Pelletier about the fascinating relationship between resilience, mental health, and business success. We delve into the concept of a daily resilience planner, aligning values, the three pillars strategy, and the importance of adaptability. This conversation will provide you with a different perspective on the concept as well as offer strategies on nurturing your resilience amidst the challenges of entrepreneurship.
Throughout her career in business management and psychology, Dr. Pelletier has spearheaded a national dialogue on the crucial issues of leadership resilience and workplace health. Drawing on her extensive background in corporate, insurance, governance and public sectors, she brings national and international perspectives and expertise on mental health and resilience as a key pillar of overall health. She is a bilingual practicing psychologist with over 20 years of experience in clinical psychology and advisory workplace psychology and holds a Ph.D. and an MBA from the University of British Columbia. Marie-Hélène is a Member of the Global Clinical Practice Network of the World Health Organization, and past Director on the boards of the Canadian Psychological Association and the International Association of Applied Psychology. She has presented and authored and co-authored a number of industry and academic publications and was won numerous academic and industry awards, including the Industry Leadership Award from Benefits Canada.
