How to Create Resilience with Dr. G

Dec 02, 2022


Resilience expert Deborah Gilboa, MD, aka “Dr. G” works with families, organisations, and businesses to identify the mindset and strategies to turn stress to an advantage. Renowned for her contagious humour, Dr. G works with groups across multiple generations, to rewire their attitudes and beliefs, and create resilience through personal accountability and a completely different approach to adversity.

She is a leading media personality seen regularly on TODAY, Good Morning America and The Doctors. She is also featured frequently in the Washington Post, The New York Times, Authority Magazine, and countless other digital and print outlets. 

Dr. G is board certified attending family physician and is fluent in American Sign Language. She lives in Pittsburgh with her four sons.  

My top take aways from this interview were:


  • We need leaders for change. Change is the only way to get what we want, but our brains are wired to resist change. To shortcut this, remember to ask yourself, What choices can I make here?
  • Resilience is being able to navigate change with intention. 
  • Your teams needs are very important and should be a big focus for your organisation. Focus on meeting your teams needs. Once you understand your needs, you will begin to understand yourself on a deeper level.
  • Resilience is not something you are either born with or without. You can grow your resilience. You can learn to be resilient. Start to invest in resilience building in your team.
