THE NEW SCIENCE OF MICRO-RESILIENCE:
HOW THE BEST GET EVEN BETTER.

 

The Big Idea

Micro-Resilience allows you to meet the increasing demands of high performance while maintaining more focus, more drive, and more energy than ever before.

The Micro-Resilience Program is a set of research-based frameworks for daily and hourly, micro-recoveries based on the new book by Bonnie St. John and Allen P. Haines. The result of this carefully constructed program is stronger, higher quality, and more sustainable productivity in individuals, teams, and organizations.

The Challenge

Today, our personal and professional lifestyles are highly intense – we juggle intricate challenges, confront emotionally charged interpersonal issues, and respond to intellectual demands that stretch the limits of our brainpower, contradict our primitive reactions, and otherwise overburden our human physiology. No wonder we feel BURNT OUT.

The solution

Micro-Resilience consists of five Frameworks that aggregate key scientific knowledge into distinct themes, each addressing a different type of concern. With easy adjustments, you can retrain yourself to:

real world example of micro-resilience

The spark of the idea came to us from world class tennis. With hundreds of athletes on the international circuit, why do the same few players always take home the trophies? Researchers tried to find some common element that separated these champions. But nothing consistent emerged.

Until they looked at what the winners did BETWEEN THE POINTS.

By the last set of a long tennis match, the players who used small, barely noticeable mini-recoveries between each point played much closer to the best of their ability than their competition.

We thought: what if we could use this “between the points” strategy to increase overall levels of energy, engagement, and efficiency in our everyday lives by recharging our batteries as we go?

We call this Micro-Resilience.
