More About the Workshop
This Management Series workshop touches upon all the same ideas, theories, insights and strategies as our standard Resilience workshop (detailed below). The additional value comes from the depth and specificity of the exploration that follows. Facilitated by our specially trained faculty – the participants will be able to consider how the learnings can be applied to their roles, their teams, and their company’s culture, sharing their concerns and their experiences with the group.
In this three-hour workshop, 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.
- Focus on what resilience means from a perspective of leadership: how to create a resilient culture and improve morale in tough conditions.
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”

Frequently Asked Questions
Our specialist faculty has been selected not just on their professional and academic expertise, but also on their ability to engage audiences with their dynamism, charisma and warmth. You can see their profiles on our faculty page.
Each participant will receive exercises and supplementary reading to embed the learning before and after the workshop. In addition, an extensive and printable workbook will be provided for use during the session itself, and as a reference document afterwards.
We generally do not allow filming of any of our live events, as our workshops are a safe space and this would likely inhibit the feeling of safety and privacy required by attendees in order to participate fully. Our goal is always to create the very best experience for our participants, and for that we try to preserve the closed nature of the sessions.
Due to the nature of the material covered in our Workshops, we find that smaller group sizes help everyone to feel relaxed and get the most out of participating, so we have a maximum group size of 30 participants per workshop. If you are looking to engage a large number of people at once, our Talks can be delivered to audiences of any size; and as such they act as a great introduction to The School of Life for Business.
Yes. However, because certain Workshops, Talks and Conversations complement one another and work well in tandem, we often recommend booking them as part of longer programmes, according to your team or organisation’s needs.
These Workshops are designed for corporate training – where an organisation books private sessions for their internal teams, delivered at a time of their choosing.
