WHAT IS SISU?

Sisu (see soo) is a Finnish term loosely translated into the English language as strength of will, determination, bravery, perseverance and acting rationally in the face of adversity.  Sisu is about taking action against the odds and displaying courage.  Deciding on a course of action and sticking to that decision against repeated set-backs is sisu.

Sisu is a mindset, a spirit and a characteristic we can develop.
