Former Australian police officer builds resilience in other first responders
Shaun O'Gorman is an author, motivational speaker, father, and a former police officer in Queensland, Australia.
Growing up in a police family, Shaun knew from a very young age what he aspired to be when he got older. But he wasn't aware of how much this profession would change him.
Witnessing horrific events and drama of day to day life, he struggled for a long time with PTSD, attempted suicide and eventually left the police force. It took a lot of personal development to get to his best self.
Now Shaun found a purpose in speaking to audiences, police academies, military, first responders, athletes and schools about his struggles and his goal is to help people to cope with life’s hardships and build resilience.
It's truly impossible for me to answer the question, "Who has been your favourite guest on RESILIENT PEOPLE?"
I've been so grateful to meet the many individuals who have shown their incredible fortitude following life's biggest challenges and intimately shared their stories with me.
But here are some of the conversations that I'd like for you to listen to and share with your community.
And as always, keep sharing with me who your favourites have been.
