Audio interview with Judith Rodin
Judith Rodin began her career as a psychologist thinking about stress and coping mechanisms. She wanted to know why some people seem to do better with comparable stressors. This area of interest continued throughout her career when she later became the President of the University of Pennsylvania, and then the President of the Rockefeller Foundation; the first woman to hold both roles. In 2014, while at Rockefeller, she published a book called The Resilience Dividend: Being Strong in a World Where Things Go Wrong. The book defines five principles that all resilient entities have, and so if you find yourself wondering how you can develop some of these—don’t fret; it’s possible, and Judith tells us how.
