Resilience is the inspirational story of Lisa Lisson, who became the first female president of FedEx Canada while suffering a devastating personal tragedy. Part leadership guide, part memoir of loss, and part personal empowerment primer on how to achieve your goals no matter what the universe throws at you, Resilience is an inspirational story about how to rise to the top in a man’s world, triumph over adversity, lead a fulfilling life, and live each day with purpose and gratitude.
