Authenticity in uniform: your path to unwavering resilience – Friday 26 October, 2pm to 3pm

'Resilience Jedi' Daksha Patel explores how to align your true self with the demands of your uniformed role.

Resilience doesn’t come solely from external factors or a tough exterior, but is rooted in a deep sense of self-awareness and authenticity. When you can reconcile your personal values, beliefs and identity with the responsibilities and challenges that come with your uniformed role, you’re more likely to develop unwavering resilience.
