Presenter: Tim Piccirillo
In this lively session, participants will discover that adversity can actually be a positive thing in our work and personal lives. Tim shares his story of growing up with a disability and how it shaped his view of the world. Adversity normally has a negative connotation in most cultures but “re-framing” a difficult situation, tragedy or disturbing event can actually benefit a person and the people in their orbit. Tim believes there is “a lesson and an advantage” in every adverse situation and he’ll show you how to access these.
- Adversity and your response to it is based on your perception of the situation
- Changing your mind about an adverse situation can change both your physiology and mental state
- Adversity can help you develop empathy in your lab and your personal life
- Adversity makes you stronger and more resilient
