Washington DC Women’s Forum 2018: Resilient to the Core


Cornerstone Research hosted a networking event titled “Resilient to the Core,” that featured researcher, former CBS News anchor, and bestselling author Michelle Gielan.

Cornerstone Research hosted its second networking event for Washington DC professional women working in the legal field. Michelle Gielan, bestselling author of Broadcasting Happiness: The Science of Igniting and Sustaining Positive Change, was the evening’s featured speaker.

As Ms. Gielan explained, a mindset hijacked by stress is one of the biggest barriers to high performance. Yet people who build a positive mindset can dramatically improve their default response to stress and boost their energy, happiness, and success. Ms. Gielan shared insights on how to rethink our relationship with stress, and provide simple, proven steps to build sustainable resilience.
