Soft Skills for Leaders with Lisa Evans

Sep 6, 2021

We all experience setbacks in life and having the resilience to bounce back is essential. 

However, it is possible to go beyond resilience and sustain optimum performance. The answer? Human durability. Human durability goes far beyond resilience in the face of adversity. 

Our guest in this episode is Derrick McManus. He is a member of the elite SA Police STAR Group, a world renown international speaker, and expert on Human Durability.

Join us in our chat as Derrick shares his life-changing story in 1994 being shot 14 times in less than 5 seconds with a high-powered rifle. Overcoming and defying all odds, Derrick amazed everyone including his doctors and physicians when he not just survived but thrived after the shooting.

From his experience, Derrick shares his simple yet powerful process for human durability and how you can use it to go beyond resilience, achieve what you want with less stress and more confidence than you thought possible.
