STRESS is a condition of feeling, experienced emotionally, mentally and/or physically, when a person perceives that demands exceed the personal and social resources the individual is able to mobilize.
RESILIENCE is the capacity to prepare for, recover from and adapt in the face of stress, challenge and adversity.

Strengthening resilience and building coherence are critically important strategies for improving personal and organizational efficacy, productivity, mindfulness, health and well being.

Build Resilience founder, Meg Hogan, teaches simple, highly effective, evidence-based techniques that can be used eyes wide open, on-the-go to calm reactive emotions and neutralize stress in the moment.

Supporting mental and emotional self-regulation, Meg helps to identify sources of stress and energy drain. Through experiential workshops and individual mentoring, Meg empowers participants with resilience building techniques that can measurably diminish toxicity of stress. She supports sustainability with the integration of personalized practice plans into daily routines.

Designed to support organizations, Build Resilience workshops address burn out, reducing turnover, absenteeism, errors and healthcare claims, while improving communication, efficiency, productivity and overall health of the organization. Outcomes are quantifiable using a Personal and Organizational Quality Assessment.

Designed to support the individual, Build Resilience mentoring addresses effects of stress, overwhelm and fatigue on emotional, mental and physical health, while providing structured means to renew energy, think more clearly, make smarter choices, improve performance, and measurably enhance one's quality of life.
