Program Description

Adversity. There is arguably no more potent force in the human journey. How we respond, and what we do with it, can determine the difference between good and evil, bliss and despondency—and ultimately whether we rise or fall.

Join Paul G. Stoltz, PhD, resilience expert, and Jamie Fay, business management leader, for Flourish, a program drawing on the most advanced, proven, and practical science and tools in existence. You’ll be equipped to not just survive, cope, or overcome, but to truly harness adversity to achieve your goals and hand forge a meaningful life.

Within various formats, exercises, and challenges, you will:

  • Measure and master your Adversity Quotient® (AQ) and your GRIT—the bedrocks of human endeavor—to fortify and enhance everything that matters to you
  • Get a vital baseline on your life using the online AQ Profile® and GRIT Gauge® assessments
  • Amplify and hone your meaningful life with Define Your Mountain to elevate your expectations and aspirations for your remaining years
  • Gear up—applying the most advanced, proven tools for measurably improving all facets of your AQ, CORE resilience, and GRIT
  • Ascend—move forward and up, relentlessly harnessing adversity and opportunity, toward your most worthy goals and optimal life.

Power up your life with this full-engagement, energizing program. You’ll go home with comprehensive feedback on your AQ Profile and GRIT Gauge, and have the opportunity to receive video coaching.
