Organizational Resilience Training & Development

Building a better boat while at sea…


Resilience thinking is galvanizing scientists, governments, and social innovators.  Resilience asks how to support people and create systems that know how to recover, persist and even to thrive in the face of change.  Strong resilience lets us meet change and crisis without fear.  I teach what feeds your resilience and your people.

We want not only to handle what is coming across our plates now, but also to establish the foundation of performance that lasts and renews — getting the job done.

There is no doubt that the “normative” breakdowns in employees’ mental health adversely affect such things as productivity, motivation, judgment, and job satisfaction. In fact, we believe that employees’ mental health is the most valuable asset of any organization. — Rick Suarez, PhD.

You bring me in as the catalyst for organizational vitality from within. My clients and students are happier, more peaceful, more efficient and creative, and more generous in their work.

Resilience will feed everyday operations and be the basis for how you will handle times of intensity and times of crisis.  It’s leveraged and will determine how well you integrate what you learn and how quickly you recover.

The results of working with resilience appear in more alive employees — less stress, more aligned with purpose, with more integrated professional, physical, spiritual and emotional lives.  You also see in them greater creativity and humor in the face of the challenges inherent in your mission.   They make fewer mistakes, miss less work, innovate more and last longer. These are not small things.  They are a powerful gift to your organization’s mission and to the people you care about in it.  And these are the kind of people you want to show up to work with, and the kind of person you want to offer to this world.

To talk and share:


As an Executive Director, I have hired Lorca to work with me during the past three years with two non-profit educational organizations.  Each time she worked professionally with teachers to create an environment to balance professional and personal goals. She is remarkable in her ability to work with educators to create a dynamic where they feel safe working with each other and within themselves. Because teachers can often give themselves to the point where they leave their profession, she trained our staffs in understanding how caring for themselves is caring for their careers.

On  personal note, I have the utmost respect for Lorca and her journey in this world.  She is open and kind and intelligent.  She listens, and is able to carefully craft the perfect workshop around specific criteria. She isn’t stuck to repeating the same workshop over and over. She is constantly developing and evolving, and her work is exceptional.
