What are the personal and professional attributes of resilient people? Lanai Greenhalgh, manager of CSU's Employee Assistance Program, reveals the answer in this Wednesday's Women at Noon program.

What is it about Jane?

We'll call them John and Jane; they're the employees in your office who, like everyone else, experience stress during their work day, and yet seem to recover more quickly than everyone else. 

They retain a sense of equanimity, respond thoughtfully to challenges, and move forward. They stay positive, keep their sense of humor, work hard, play hard, and seem to relish both. 

How do they do it?
