191: The Art and Skill of Resilience: Pegah Kadkhodaian

With the challenges we currently face in our world, the quality of resilience is more important than ever. No matter what your role or position, cultivating resilience is essential. If you want more resilience in your life, then don’t miss today’s show!

Pegah Kadkhodaian is the owner of PK Coaching. She’s a renowned speaker, international trainer, and resilience expert who believes wholeheartedly in the transformative nature of resilience. Pegah is bringing her 7 Pillars of Radical Resilience to us so we can better understand how to rise up, take care of ourselves, and nurture the resilience within us. Pegah’s own mastery of resilience began with the powerful women who raised her: a mother who left revolution-torn Iran when Pegah was three, and an aunt who endured political imprisonment and unspeakable loss. Pegah witnessed the strength of these women who gifted her with the extraordinary ability to nurture thriving out of hardship. Pegah has continued to explore the power of thoughts as a Master Practitioner and Certified Trainer of Neurolinguistic Programming, Hypnotherapy, and Mental and Emotional Release Therapy. Pegah works with individuals in coaching, teaches at corporate events and universities, leads wellness retreats, and hosts the brand-new podcast, Radical Resilience, The Podcast. Her joy is to help clients find the power of radical resilience, to harness and hone it, and to learn to call it their own.
