Defining Resilience with Dr. Russell Thackeray

Happy Monday, Let's Talk Sales listeners! On this week's episode, we bring back Dr. Russell Thackeray. We had Russell on the show back in February 2020 to talk about resilience in sales, and were eager to revisit the topic of resilience after this past year. You can find last year's episode here.

Russell is the Director of QED, building change competence through increased resilience, reduced burnout, mental adaptability and accountability. As a psychologist, he specializes in evaluation, learning and development. He is also the host of a podcast called Resilience Unravelled.

Russell is based in Southhampton, U.K. We hope you enjoy our conversation!
