Passion and Grit: Build Your Resilience Toolkit



Wed, Oct 20th, 2021


10:00 am to 12:00 pm


Encountering sudden change that’s outside of our control can be daunting. Whether it’s an unexpected increase in growth or a less positive obstacle, it’s probably not the first time and it won’t be the last.

If there is one thing we have learned from the last eighteen months its that, everyone has dealt with unexpected change; while one person’s situation might look different to another, one thing is certain – we are not alone in our journey.
So, Women’s Enterprise Centre is presenting a five-part series, “Passion & Grit: Build Your Resilience Toolkit,” to help you develop four key aspects of resiliency: mindset, preparedness, strength and action.
Instead of focusing on how you can get things back to how they were, adopting a resilient mindset can help you to adapt and focus on what your business can look like in the future.
You started your business because you wanted to make an impact, and those same values and aspirations can continue to drive you forward through change.
In this series, you will have the opportunity to connect with other women entrepreneurs to support and encourage one another to stay motivated, gain insight, new ideas, opinions and feedback from an outside perspective.
Dawn McCooey, Series facilitator and WEC Entrepreneur in Residence, will introduce you to scenario planning tools, useful resources and an action plan template that you can use in your business.
Assisted by group activities you will discover how to apply these learnings to restore confidence in your business plans today and every time you encounter an obstacle.
When faced with uncertainty, it’s common to freeze or panic. Yet, the worst thing you can do is nothing.
We’re here to help you develop a systematic way of thinking about the future and what it could look like, so that you can prioritize your next steps and summon the strength and passion to move forward!
By the end of this series, you’ll have a go-to process that you can use to find your next step every time you encounter a bump in the road, so you can approach the issue methodically instead of jumping to a conclusion.
After the series, you can connect with a WEC Business Advisor to stay accountable and receive guidance to overcome roadblocks.
