Resilience building training course

What is Resilience?

Resilience is usually defined as “the positive capacity to cope with stress or adversity”. Resilience in the workplace refers to an employee’s ability to cope with the various challenges of the modern workplace: learning new technology, organisational change, downsizing, mergers, increased workload, budget pressures or deadlines.

Research has shown that resilience is “the single most important factor in determining whether a person is successful, satisfied and happy” (Shatt, 2008, The Resilience Factor).

Building resilience also reduces stress and lessens the risk of depression and mental illness. Research by the Black Dog Institute (a mental health organisation) shows enhanced resilience leads to a “significant improvement in job satisfaction, productivity and retention in the workplace.” Provide your employees with the resilience training and skills they need to perform at their best.

Life and work can throw challenges, stress and situations that drain and deplete us. In this course, using the most up to date neuroscience research and proven self-management techniques people learn how to manage themselves through stressful situations, and keep their resilience tank full.

Whether you find yourself in a constantly high-demand role, are going through organisational change, or you have adversity in your personal life, this course provides you with powerful and simply applied techniques to help you weather the storm and manage your own personal mindset and come through the other side.

In this resilience training course participants develop the capacity to withstand and adapt to life’s challenges, by providing a simple range of activities to boost positive mood and manage negative emotions.

It shows how the brain, body and emotions are linked and how people can change the way they feel to create an upward spiral of positive emotion that increases resilience.
