Developing Resilience: Training for Managers

Home > In-House Training Courses > Developing Resilience: Training for Managers

This training course helps delegates reflect on their management style and consider how they can build on their personal resilience skills and encourage their team members to develop a more resilient, positive approach to pressure and change. 

Course Overview

A resilient manager can help create an environment where team members are encouraged to support each other and work collaboratively, even in challenging times.

The key to this training course is the understanding that the positive attitudes and behaviours which generate resilience can be developed. The theme of the training involves introducing areas of personal resilience and how they can be improved. During this process, facilitated discussion will be used to link individual resilience to both team and organisational resilience so that managers can prepare practical action plans at the end of the course.
