Masterclass: Building Resilience: The Mastery of Me

1 class
60 minutes


Research in psychology has repeatedly demonstrated that resilience is one of the greatest predictors of personal and professional success.

In fact, the concept of resilience is so powerful that it led our next masterclass host, Scott Shute, to leave behind a six-year executive career in operations at LinkedIn. Instead, he chose to dedicate himself full-time to leading mindfulness and compassion programs that helped the team at LinkedIn become more resilient. Later, his passion compelled him to write about resilience in his book, “The Full Body Yes,” in a chapter titled The Mastery of Me.

Now, Scott joins us at Hone to share insights from this chapter about resilience and its two pillars: presence and mindset. In an interactive workshop, he’ll share the science behind why staying focused and present is so difficult and how we can hack our own internal systems to be more present. He’ll also teach you ways to shift your mindset to see opportunity, even during setbacks.

You’ll leave with a greater understanding of: 

  • How to be present by training your attention
  • How to reframe challenging situations by shifting your mindset toward growth, optimism, and gratitude 
  • How to integrate practices into your life that will build resilience
