Grit, Resilience, and Taking Action Amid the COVID Storm

Grit is paradoxical in nature, and often elusive. Attempting to simply plow through disruption becomes a grind — we burn out and the harder we try, the less gritty we become. Willpower alone is never enough. But, if we learn to place our attention on the fundamentals of transformation — purpose, practice, and process — grit flows naturally and spontaneously in any organization. In this interactive, virtual presentation, Bruce Kirkby demonstrates the fundamentals of bringing grit to life, and goes deeper to tackle the daunting challenges we’re facing in today’s COVID slowdown. With more than thirty years of experience as a wilderness guide, Kirkby has led teams through unthinkable challenges — helicopter crashes, hostage takings, crocodile attacks, grizzly bears, avalanches, medical emergencies, and political unrest. He offers a message of reassurance and hope, that even amid the darkest gales, every one of us can make a difference, and help move our team closer to the summit that awaits.
