An inspiring book for readers of Sheryl Sandberg and Arlene Dickinson

Lisa Lisson's life seemed perfect: she had married her high school sweetheart, applied her marketing degree to a position at FedEx Express Canada, and risen to become a vice president (and would ultimately become president) of the company. One night, after putting their four children to bed, her husband, Patrick, marvelled that their lives seemed perfectly happy.

Just a few hours later, everything changed.

One moment Lisa was sleeping beside Patrick, and the next, she was kneeling on the floor beside his unconscious body frantically administering CPR. Patrick had had a massive heart attack and was in a coma, and the doctors were blunt: there was no hope. But for the next two years, Lisa stood by his side and awaited a miracle, while continuing to balance life as a high-powered executive and mother of four.

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.

Lisa Lisson is the president of FedEx Express Canada. She has been awarded a Diamond Jubilee Medal in recognition of her achievements and was inducted into the Women's Executive Network Top 100 Hall of Fame in 2015. She lives in Burlington, Ontario.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love a good success story I admire Lisa Lisson. As a person who is near the beginning of my career, I love reading stories like this that inspire me to work harder and believe in myself. She has worked so hard all the way to the top AND she also has four children. Her story about her husband is touching and shows her strength.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic read I read the book to prep for meeting Lisa at a local store. I was so looking forward to telling her firsthand how the book affected me but unfortunately, the event was cancelled. I cannot even imagine how Lisa dealt with her Husband's health issues. This woman is a powerhouse. So many statements spoke volumes to me. This book deals with several topics but not in a choppy way. I highly recommend it. It will stay with me for ages #plumreview
