I love Anne Grady. Talking to her is like getting a PhD is how to build and recognize resiliency. Her life experiences giver her massive credentials to speak to her topic of Resiliency no matters how bad life hits you.
On this episode Anne Grady shares answers to my questions about resiliency and productivity. That one hit home for me which is why I asked the question and you might be surprised by the answer she shared.
We also discuss the benefit of a worry window, why it is important to know your cognitive shortcuts and a key question to ask yourself on a regular basis to improve resiliency. Hint, it has something to do with my favorite idea of perspectives.
Anne Grady began studying the brain and neurodevelopment to find answers while searching for treatment options for her son, Evan, after he was diagnosed with severe mental illness and Autism. Then, after being diagnosed with an avocado-sized tumor in her salivary gland in 2014, she had to lean on the tools she learned with her son to help her through this difficult time.
Now, she wants to help others cultivate the habits and skills to build strength through struggle with the science behind resilience.
