Cultivate Resilience at Work

Cultivate Resilience at Work

Cultivate Resilience – Business Workshop

Today, more than ever before, we are flattered into thinking that we’re in control of our lives; technology, globalisation, scientific and medical progress all contribute to this illusion. But life rarely goes entirely according to plan; adversity is a constant.
What we call 'resilience' is, simply put, the ability to withstand or recover from difficult situations. Knowing we won't be destroyed by periods of stress and struggle allows us to be more comfortable with risk and uncertainty. This, in turn, means we're likely to be more effective – and more energetic – regardless of what setbacks we encounter in our private and professional lives.

The good news is that resilience is a skill that we can learn and develop. In this session, we consider where our ideas about resilience come from, and explore ways of re-framing our attitudes to failure. We explore the complexity of emotions, and how we can work with them. Ultimately, we learn to reshape our personal narratives – so that every encounter with adversity can become a story of resilience and triumph.

 In this CPD accredited workshop, we:

• Consider where resilience comes from and what diminishes it

• Understand the resources we already possess and how we can make best use of them

• Develop a set of practical techniques for building resilience

• Gain confidence in our ability to bounce back from any difficult situation

• Learn how to help others cultivate their personal resilience skills.
