Resilience is a buzz word but what Andry Anastasis McFarlane does in this very timely book is to make it meaningful for those who are facing the impact of COVID, and those who are facing the reality of a constantly changing and increasingly demanding workplace.  

She moves resilience beyond being a strategy for survival or a quality available to the heroic, into making REAL RESILIENCE a set of skills that can be developed by all of us. As we emerge into a working world changed by a pandemic, this book is a key resource for developing the adaptability, flexibility and self-care that mark those who are REALLY RESILIENT.
