Measuring and Building the Motivation,
Grit, and Resilience to Be at Our Best
For our ATD session on March 21st, we'll be participating in a tremendous workshop from MindVue founder and president, Dr. Brian Davidson, about building our internal motivation, grit, and resilience to help us thrive both professionally and personally. As part of this training, ATD-KC members will be invited to complete the MindVue Profile to provide insight and awareness of our mindsets today as well as equip us with the knowledge to be at our best. During the workshop, Dr. Davidson will share ATD-KC's anonymized aggregate results from the MindVue Profile, explain the latest science driving high performance, and lead activities to help attendees foster the motivation, perseverance, and resilience in both themselves and those around them. If you are a leader of others or have a desire to maximize your own potential, this is a session you do not want to miss!
