New Course: Building Resilient Teams

New Course: Building Resilient Teams

Posted by Jan Lawrence

Would you like your team to work better together and support others? Perhaps your team is facing change and you would like to approach it proactively?

Our NEW Building Resilient Teams 1-day course has been designed to identify specific practical actions the team can take, as well as provide members with the space to consider how these actions can best be implemented.

The fact that each team is as unique as the individuals of which it is comprised is a given, so in an informal and relaxed environment team members will:

  • hear the latest research on this topic
  • learn how others have approached the need to build resilience
  • understand the role each team member has in building a supportive, cohesive and high performing team
  • participate in fun practical exercises, watch videos, exchange stories, try guided visualization, hear case studies, play games, take part in discussions and get down to some vital action planning


Building Resilient Teams – Trainer


Michelle Spirit - Expert trainer


Michelle Spirit is a human resource specialist who has a flair for delivering memorable, thought provoking support and learning based on cutting edge biopsychosocial research that she translates into practical tools and techniques.  For over 20 years she has been helping organisations and individuals in the private, public and higher education sectors to manage stress, build resilience and understand mental health issues.


Michelle explains her motivation for developing the Building Resilient Teams training course:

“I have been delivering training to help people build their resilience for many years, and it has become clear to me during this time that one of the most important protective factors that helps people feel more resilient is to know that they work in a team where members trust each other, handle conflict positively and where all members pull together to achieve a common goal.

The course has proved incredibly popular. Why? Well perhaps it is due to the knowledge that nearly all of us work in a team, and that if individual efforts can be harnessed positively it really makes a difference to the way in which people perceive their work and, in turn, their levels of motivation. There is plenty of research out there that tells us that we humans like to feel part of a group and that we can cope with high demands and challenging situations if we feel supported. This course has taken this understanding and developed it into a highly interactive programme that enables teams to achieve exactly this.”
