The Resiliency Group

“One is the loneliest number …” Three Dog Night was right when they sang these words. It’s not only lonely but also foolhardy when it comes to creating a sustainable organization, a resilient life. We need each other for support, for insights, for collaboration, and for innovation.

Eileen created The Resiliency Group because she wanted to put around her clients, amazing people who bring critical skill sets to the challenges and opportunities found in this complex world.

Consider this a just-in-time resource team. Rather than support high overhead and multiple salaries, we join together on an as-needed basis for our clients. But you can also reach out to these fine folks directly. (Yes—foolhardy say the marketing folks who insist that people stay on MY web site. Poppycock. We believe in abundance!)

I’ve hand-selected them because I know we have the same values, work ethic, and passion for making the world a better place… however small that corner of the world might be.

  • On behalf of Ajilon, I would like to thank you for your participation in our Orlando Manager’s meeting. Your subject matter and presentation style were exactly what we were looking for!
