Developing Wellbeing and Resilience Training

In-House Training Courses > Developing Wellbeing and Resilience Training Course

A positive and interactive course to support the development of wellbeing and resilience skills - not just for maximising individual health, but also to encourage and challenge teams
to grow stronger together

Why Wellbeing and Resilience training is so important

Key messages for participants during this training will be to look after themselves and others; be more aware of the potential impacts of their own pressures and challenges; increase their current pressure management techniques; use their support networks to the full, and never stop building resilience.

Participants will have the opportunity to evaluate their current levels of wellbeing in relation to work-life balance. These insights will give them a greater awareness of how they can positively develop to handle change and adversity situations - especially when tapping into support from others, and providing good levels of support themselves.

By promoting positivity and being encouraged to challenge negative thinking throughout the course, delegates will appreciate the value of consistently focusing on elements within their lives that can be controlled, as well as learning from each other.

Key benefits of attending this course

With full participation the participants will achieve the following:

  • Greater awareness of self-care and how to support others
  • Strategies to manage the impact of pressure and challenges
  • A more positive approach to change and adversity
  • Understanding of the benefit of support networks and team support
  • Increased feeling of control when pressure is overwhelming
  • More considered responses to difficult situations, with feelings under control
  • Understanding of the importance of listening and understanding others
  • Actions to make a positive change to reduce stress and improve wellbeing

Who would benefit from attending this course?

Any member of staff who wants to take a proactive approach to learn self-care strategies and improve their approach and response to challenging situations. This training is particularly suited to teams who want to enhance connection, communication and understanding.

The course content and capacity can be customised to ensure organisations’ specific learning criteria are met. Consultancy in developing wellbeing and resilience is also an option either as a standalone service or in conjunction with training.

Course Overview

The course is facilitated in a relaxed, supportive and flexible manner with a focus on making participants feel at ease, so they can consider what actions would be appropriate for them, in relation to developing self-care and coping mechanisms.

The course content includes:

  • Individual ‘Wellbeing Wheel’ exercise to highlight factors which impact on a ‘positive work-life balance’
  • Physiological and psychological impacts of high levels of pressure via our ‘Fight-Flight Response.’
  • Individual assessment of current pressures, acknowledging those which can and cannot be controlled.
  • Shifting focus to influence perceptions of control.
  • Stress management and wellbeing tools and techniques including tips for assertiveness and developing boundaries.
  • An introduction to ‘diary keeping’ to challenge any negative thinking.
  • Exercise to consider more helpful ways of approaching stressful situations.
  • Communication and listening skills when supporting others.
  • Individual and team action planning for the future.

In addition to a course workbook, participants receive a handout of useful tips, strategies and exercises to support their ongoing development to improve their wellbeing and resilience.

A customer testimonial from the Developing Wellbeing and Resilience course

"The trainer was great in her delivery/ reading and controlling the room and came across as calm, confident, understanding and it was evident that she is extremely knowledgeable and well-versed in the topic/ course content. The training has helped people re-assess themselves and their work, the things they can control/ change and how they can be more positive and also look for signs in others and help. In terms of the feedback from the participants, the comments overall were extremely positive."

Sally Thompson, HR Manager, The Glenturret Distillery

"It was amazing, at the end of the course, as well as during, I felt better connected with my colleagues."
