Resilience in Theory and in Practice

The Good Stuff, is a podcast from The Wheel that brings you news, views, and inspiring voices from the Irish nonprofit sector. Back in autumn 2020 with series 2 of The Good Stuff, over three episodes we’ll be talking to leaders from the sector about resilience during the COVID-19 crisis.  

First, we explore the idea of resilience and how it can help — or hinder — our goals right now. The ability to spring back from adversity and recover quickly from difficulties is often termed “resilience”. In this series of The Good Stuff, we examine resilience from the perspective of our sector. What does it mean for organisations and individuals to be resilient during the COVID-19 crisis? How do we develop resilience, and — just as importantly — how do we maintain it when times get tough?  

In series 2, episode 1, we sit down with Peter McBride, Director of the Cohen Centre for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, to get his perspective on resilience as a concept and what is important for organisations right now. We also speak with Stephanie Manahan, CEO of the Central Remedial Clinic, who lead the CRC through a transformative time and offers her insights into dealing with large-scale change.
