To overcome the inevitable changes, stresses and setbacks of the professional world, individuals and organisations need resilience. Its value is indisputable – a meta-analysis of different studies suggests that when employees are happy and confident (whatever other challenges they are facing) they are 31% more productive, make 37% more sales, and are three times as creative.

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


‘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’

“Anything worth achieving will always have obstacles in the way.”
