The ABC's of Resilience - NAWBO KC Virtual Breakfast Meeting

Tuesday, May 11 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am • Organized By National Association of Women Business Owners
Online Event


Kim Specker, certified ICF Leadership and Life coach and founder and leader of RARE Transformation, LLC will present “The ABC’s of Resilience.”

The word ‘resilience’ comes from the Latin word, ‘resilio’ which means ‘to bounce back.’ The greatest way to grow your resilience is to increase your emotional capacity through intentional exercises that build the "relationship center" of the brain.  The more emotional capacity (resilience) one has, the more difficulties one can handle before getting overwhelmed and either melt down, shut down, or blow up. 

The good news is that you are not stuck with the level of emotional capacity you currently have — there are ways to grow it! There is hope! 

Join us for this free 45-minute Zoom webinar where Kim will share practical ways and interactive exercises to help you grow your emotional capacity and resilience.  You will leave feeling more energized and hopeful.
