Developing Personal Resilience

Resilience: Daisy thriving in cracked soil

1 Day Course

Course objective To enable delegates to respond positively to the pressures and demands of modern working life and to help them identify opportunities to thrive.

Introduction

Personal resilience is arguably the most important resource for coping well during challenging times. This training course introduces delegates to skills that will increase their confidence in their ability to bounce back from the many pressures and adversities they encounter in today’s workplace. They are reminded that a key aspect of being resilient is accepting that change always creates opportunities as well as problems to be solved.

The course is highly interactive and contains a variety of tools and exercises.  Delegates receive a comprehensive workbook and access to online resources, which can be revisited should they wish to improve one or more of their resilience skills.

  • Course Duration: 1-day course
  • Course Capacity: 12 delegates max (for optimum benefit)
  • Availability: All our courses are delivered in-house throughout the UK and Europe
  • Customisation: The content can be tailored to meet an organisation’s individual requirements
  • Optional Follow-up training: Short follow up sessions provide delegates with the opportunity to share experiences in using the tools provided and measure the change in their resiliency skills.

Who Is It For?

Resilience is the ability to recover quickly from setbacks and adversity. Resilient people stay committed and increase their efforts when the going gets tough. It used to be thought that people were born with resilient attributes; we now know that anyone can improve their resilience through effective training and development.

Developing Personal Resilience is suitable for anyone in an organisation. Many organisations run this course for their staff, in conjunction with a Manager’s version.

The Resilience Resources include many of the tools and exercises introduced to delegates during the resilience training course.  If delegates want to improve one or more of their resilience skills they will find that the exercises will help them to do so.
