Resilience - Available Virtually or In-Person

To overcome the inevitable changes, stresses and setbacks of the professional world, individuals and organisations need resilience.

In this two-hour session, we will:

• Consider why experiencing change can be so difficult

• Learn to develop a growth mindset, where setbacks are seen as temporary learning experiences

• Create a toolbox of resources to use when times get tough and consider what new strategies might be useful

• Explore how we might take a new perspective on difficult events

What characterises mastery of this skill?

Resilient employees are able to remain energetic, healthy and productive during and after stressful events. They understand loss as a natural part of all professional (and personal) life, and their growth mindset enables them to quickly rebuild. They stay positive by recalling past successes and regard stressful episodes as an opportunity from which to learn..


What characterises a lack of this skill?

Employees with a lack of resilience are more likely to burn out or suffer from stress. High levels of pressure distract them from work and damage their ability to focus. They might struggle to develop awareness of the physical signs of stress (leading to poor self-care) and take a long time to recover from failures.

"I found the session exceptionally interesting, illuminating and also applicable to my job and everyday life."

"I learned that showing vulnerability connects us all and that we should share failures not just successes"

"It encouraged me to look back at how I reacted to difficult situations-  especially to identify non-constructive thoughts and hopefully change them"
