Resilience in the age of the virus

Co-founder of McKinsey's Leadership practice and author of 'How To Have A Good Day', Caroline Webb, and You Okay, Doc?'s psychotherapist, Chris Cherry, explore resilience in the age of the virus

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Caroline Webb is CEO of the firm ‘How to Have a Good Day’ and author of the best-selling book by the same name. She is currently a senior advisor to McKinsey, having set up their leadership practice during her 12 years as a partner there, and a former economist at the Bank of England. She is a frequent contributor to the Harvard Business Review and features regularly in popular media such as The Financial Times and The Economist, as well as on BBC Radio.

In this seminar, Caroline & Chris explored resilience in the age of the virus – using recent findings across neuroscience, psychology and behavioural economics – together with practical advice of ‘how to have a good day’ even in the face of adversity.

The ‘Emotional & Mental Health in The Age of the Virus’ is a Seminar Series hosted by Psychotherapist Chris Cherry. Join us every Thursday at 7pm.
