Developing Personal Resilience Training
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 frequently 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: 15 delegates max (12 recommended for optimum results)
- 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 the Manager’s version.
With full participation the delegates will achieve the following:
- Enhanced realistic optimism balanced with a can-do attitude
- A more flexible, adaptable and positive approach to change
- Improved problem solving creativity skills
- Understand the benefits of good role modelling during challenging times
- Improved understanding of the benefits of building and restoring important relationships
- Acquire skills that can help to reduce workplace/home anxiety (regarding their job)
- Become more level-headed and objective under pressure
- Greater appreciation of the benefits of personal care and pacing oneself
- Improved understanding of personal boundaries and how they can be strengthened
- Greater awareness that change and adversity often creates opportunities

Building a Resilience Development Plan
Review the online resilience resources and how to access them:
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.
Optional Follow-up emails
To help embed the knowledge learned on the day we can provide delegates with follow-up emails revisiting the areas covered on the training course and signposting where to find further information and resources. The final email can include a brief questionnaire to evaluate the effectiveness of the training course.
The Manager’s version of this course “Developing Resilience: Training for Managers” also introduces delegates to the various aspects of personal resilience and how to improve them. The main difference between this and the standard Developing Personal Resilience course is the context in which the trainer delivers the course.

What people say about In Equilibrium
“The course exceeded my objectives as there were a lot of concepts that I hadn’t even considered would be covered in the course. I’ve learned about stress, boundaries, optimism, thinking traps, importance of looking after myself emotionally and physically. My objective was to learn how to be stronger and I don’t think that comes overnight.”
“I think the trainer was absolutely fantastic! Really engaging and delivered the course incredibly well. The material given during the course to take away has proved really helpful as it was a large pack with a lot of information to read over and keep going back to at later dates.”
““The whole session was equally valuable.”
“The trainer listened, responded accordingly and was excellent.”
“Thank you. An excellent course. Extremely helpful.”
“The group were so impressed with the course they have requested a follow-up in six months to measure how, as a group, they have addressed their plans and what they have achieved. I would recommend In Equilibrium to anyone who provides training for their staff, as their approach to training is extremely professional.”
