Developing Resilience: Training for Managers

Resilience is now a key competence for managers working under pressure during periods of change.  This training course helps managers improve their personal resilience as well as supporting the resilience of those they work with.

Our training courses are currently being delivered in a live, virtual, interactive format, in addition to onsite face-to-face training where appropriate. All of our training is facilitated by experienced subject experts.

Course Context

It is not possible to make progress without experiencing occasional setbacks and disappointments; however, it is how managers react and respond to problems that will determine the success or failure of the organisation.

Resilience is the ability to maintain your normal level of performance, or improve on it, during times of change and adversity. The key to this training course is the understanding that the positive attitudes and behaviours which generate resilience can be developed. 

The course content will be adapted to incorporate the organisation’s development priorities. The theme of the day 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.

The course is highly interactive and contains a variety of practical exercises. Delegates receive a comprehensive workbook and access to online resources which can be used post-training to improve one or more resilience skills.

Duration: 1-day face-to-face course or virtually over two shorter sessions.  We can also deliver a condensed version of this course

Format: Virtual, live, interactive session or face-to-face delivery.

Please get in touch with us for information regarding optimum group sizes, our availability and how we can tailor this training to meet your organisation’s requirements.   We can arrange for specific course objectives to be discussed with your trainer, and we can adapt the course content to reflect the impact of COVID-19 on the well-being of the delegates.

Who Is It For?

This course is suitable for anyone with team responsibility.

A testimonial for the Developing Resilience Training for Managers course:

 

"A really engaging and thought-provoking session, which enabled us to look not only at our individual resilience and how we could boost it, but also at how our collective styles have been shaped by the organisational culture."
