Resilient People Thrive
FACT. Resilience is a top skill needed in today’s workplace.
And there has never been a more appropriate or more necessary time than NOW to focus on our resilience. Everyone experiences trauma, tragedy, stress, and now life-changing events like a pandemic, so it’s important to build up the skill of resilience to come out on the other side stronger than we were before.
It is normal for us to seek routine and often focus more on negativity than positivity. The good news is, we change that norm and build our resilience so we can handle whatever life throws at us in the healthiest way. Jean’s Resilient People Thrive program challenges you to forget what you’ve learned about “bouncing back” from hardship, and instead bounce forward.
Resilience doesn’t mean you won’t ever experience life’s hardships; it means you’ll become empowered to overcome them and achieve personal growth that will allow you to live your life to the fullest. It will enable a positive approach to work, improve problem-solving skills, and maintain your motivation in life so that you, and those around you, can thrive.
911 Resilience Skills for First Responders - By Jean Steel
I have been volunteering for a number of years speaking to the Emergency Medical Services Academy on the power and importance of resilience. A critical life skill for us all, especially for our first responders. I am now working on creating a semester class for the Fire, Police and EMS Academy’s on this very topic. Since I couldn‘t find the perfect book that fit for the class – I am writing my own. I will be covering all kinds of topics including gratitude, mindfulness, change, optimism, self-compassion and grit. Stay tuned.
Jean Steel is an inspiring speaker who captures the audience and takes them on a laugh-filled, enriching ride which culminates in wonderful take-home ideas that are easily within reach of any audience member. She is our most highly rated conference keynote.Jeanette Shea, Jeanette Shea & Associates, Arizona
As a meeting planner, Jean and Jenny are some of my most favorite people to work with. Jean is someone I could schedule to be onstage during that afternoon lull and within minutes, the audience would come back to life. Laughter would be filling the room and afterwards, Jean and her message would be the buzz of the conference. Our post-conference surveys are always glowing with feedback about how much they enjoyed Jean.Derek Anderson, Director of Marketing and Communications, Washington Association of Counties

Thank you from the bottom of every student’s heart. You were an overwhelming hit with our students. One student said, “The keynote topic and speaker were so good, and so short. I felt like I wanted to hear more.” It seems every student got the message your were sending.

Jean rocks it out of the park with her keynotes and various breakout sessions. At our annual conference in April she sold out of her books due to the high-demand for her materials. Our conference attendees raved about her! We were told by many participants that Jean was one of the best Keynotes/presenters they have seen.Crystal Keenan, Deputy Director, Arizona ALFA
