Join us on 24 January 2017 for an one day pilot course on Personal Resilience for Senior Managers.

What is resilience?
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.

Course objective
To enable delegates to respond positively to the pressures and demands of modern working life and to help them identify opportunities to thrive.
 
Overview
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, which can be revisited should they wish to improve one or more of their resilience skills.
