Mary Fenwick on Resilience
Mary Fenwick is an executive teams and leadership coach, who also writes the main advice column for Psychologies magazine. Since qualifying as a coach in 2009, she focuses on women in leadership, speaking up, and wellbeing.
Originally from Alexandra, Central Otago, Mary is a former chair of Kea UK, a TedX speaker, and regularly presents Facebook Lives to the 1.3million followers of the Psychologies magazine Facebook page. Last week, she did two Facebook Lives on the subject of resilience, where her interest comes from both personal and professional experience.
“In 2008, my husband died and, on the day of his funeral, I found out that the magazine I’d been editing had collapsed. So I entered the last global recession in the madness of bereavement, as a single parent (to four children) with no job. I don’t believe there is any one answer that will fit everybody when it comes to resilience, so I’m interested in sharing the widest possible range of resources, based on validated, peer-reviewed research”.
