About the project
We helped Christopher Shen publish the first edition of Wrestling with Resilience in 2018 and designed and distributed his previous book, Wrestling with Difficult Stakeholders, in 2019. In late 2020 he came to us to have a second edition of Wrestling with Resilience published. We did the cover design, following Christopher’s specific brief, and did the print design of the interior of the book. It was then printed via our print-on-demand service, which also covers a wide range of booksellers. The book was then converted into an ebook and distributed via our online distributors. We did a Marketing Stage 1 Action Plan for Chris for Wrestling with Difficult Stakeholders and many of its marketing tips can be directed towards this book as well.

About the book
How can we be resilient and flexible when facing difficult challenges and adversity in our work, and in our life? How can we develop our resilience and mental toughness to perform under stress and pressure? Wrestling with Resilience is a handbook that answers these questions.

Written by psychologist Christopher Shen and Associate Professor Simon Moss, Wrestling with Resilience is a straightforward, accessible handbook for developing resilience and mental toughness. In it, Christopher and Simon develop the reader's understanding of and ability to perform in a difficult environment in their workplaces and lives through clear concise explanations supported with practical activities.

This 2021 edition includes recommended habits and practices to build resilience for COVID-19.

Written in a straightforward, accessible style, Wrestling with Resilience is designed to introduce and develop practical skills in controlling stress, developing mental toughness and resilience, maintaining confidence and self-esteem, and performing under pressure. It will also help instil an attitude of initiative, ownership and self-reliance.

About the Author

Christopher Shen is a psychologist who has a passion for developing high performance solutions in the workplace. He offers executive coaching, leadership development programs and team building workshops to foster talent. He also teaches organisations to identify and nurture high achievers in their workplace by conducting emerging leaders’ programs and facilitating talent-identification practices. Training is also conducted to help leaders and managers better perform in their jobs and develop their leadership skills and behaviours, as well as facilitate their operational and strategic vision and planning. Christopher also provides psychology services and employee assistance programs to individuals to help with support and assistance in difficult times.

Simon Moss is Dean of Graduate Studies and Associate Professor at Charles Darwin University. His primary research interest concerns how characteristics of organisations and societies, such as inequality of income or leadership, influence the brain functioning—and ultimately the mood, creativity, intuition, engagement, honesty, and altruism—of individuals. To investigate these issues, Simon has published a range of books and articles in the fields of leadership, personality, motivation, integrity, and stress. For example, he is an author of The Science of Management, Sustainable Coaching, The Negative Side of Positive Thinking, Where Should I Work?, and Emotional Intelligence: A Journey to the Source.
