Publisher's Summary

Learn powerful science-based techniques to boost focus, drive, and energy hour by hour throughout the day - every day.
As leadership consultants and executive trainers, Bonnie St. John and Allen P. Haines have heard the same complaints from clients for years: periodic burnout, lack of focus, and low energy. So they dug in to the latest research on neuroscience, psychology, and physiology, looking for big answers. Instead they found small answers - proof that small adjustments in daily routines, including thought patterns, food and drink, rest, and movement, can fight the forces that sap our energy and store focus and drive. They call these amazing efficient restorative techniques "micro-resilience". Thousands of men and women from all walks of life have already found effortless ways to incorporate these little changes into the busiest of schedules. Dozens of entertaining anecdotes from real people using micro-resilience demonstrate that when our brains fire faster, our energy increases, and we can cope with almost any surprise, pressure, or crisis.


What the Critics Say

"Bonnie St. John has focused on how to increase hour-by-hour resilience, which is critical in today's world. Her approach integrates science-based, intentional, and immediate recoveries and has broad application to health care and other service industries that count on teams to deliver their best. Micro-Resilience is a great example of a 21st-century solution to meet our 21st-century challenges and opportunities." (Bernard J. Tyson, chairman and CEO, Kaiser Permanente)
"Micro-Resilience is a transformative program that doesn't force you to change, but instead enhances the resources you already have to give you much more focus and energy." (Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs, CEO Aspen Leadership Institute, former CEO of CNN and TIME magazine)
"We may learn best from our failures. But our successes require that we reach down deep and muster the resilience to act on what we have learned. In Micro-Resilience, Bonnie St. John and Allen Haines not only inspire us that we can be better, they illuminate the path forward." (Gary Heil, founder of The Center for Innovative Leadership)

Good read!

I liked this book. The concept of micro-resilience rsonated with me personally and I have been guilty of "awfulizing." I recommend this book for anyone looking to improve their sense of, "yes I can and I will."
