Adaptive Resilience

Some of the latest neuroscience and behavioral research suggests that resilience - the ability to recover from adversity, adapt and thrive - can be systematically developed as a set of skills, especially in challenging times.


Adaptive resilience is the ability to recover from adversity, adapt and thrive. It builds the capacity to be productive, resourceful, and creative while dealing with changing circumstances or adversity.

This interactive program uses a mindfulness-based approach to build the behaviors, mental habits, and practices that promote personal resilience while growing a culture of resilience within teams and organizations. This 3-part series is available for in-person delivery or as live online training.

Many thanks to John Puts and Armin Alibegović for taking us on a mindfulness and emotional Intelligence journey this week, which gave us a chance to breathe, reconnect, build empathy and compassion through the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (SIYLI) programme for Kiron Open Higher Education.
I can definitely recommend them to bring this to all organisations during these unprecedented times to enhance well-being, leadership, resilience and collaboration, leading to improved team performance.

Team Lead @ GetYourGuide

It was a great experience! Well planned and organised, yet flexible enough to leave room to anyone to share their own feelings. 
It definitely helped me through this times and I am sure it will boost my resilience and motivation in the times ahead. Thank you John Puts and Connor Swenson for creating such a touching experience in a safe environment.


Marlon Marcano
Director @ ReThink

Whew, it’s been an incredibly busy couple of weeks but I was still able to spend sometime doing the practices and reflecting on what you guys taught us. The journey you took us on was very impactful and really helped me to stop and consider that we all have basically the same needs and wants so I should take the time to consider the other’s POV.


I discovered that I tend to take for granted the people around me and become self absorbed to the point of being dismissive anyone else’s situation. So thank you very much for that.
