Personal resilience is the ability to maintain wellbeing and work performance under pressure. It describes our ability to bounce back when we have received a set back and helps us to feel stronger and more able to cope with some of the daily challenges in life. This session is designed to enable participants to have a greater awareness of resilience and ability to strengthen their personal resilience.

  • Know what resilience is
  • Understand your natural resilience levels
  • Understand the relationship between work pressure, performance and wellbeing
  • Know the connection between emotional health and resilience and why we need it
  • Know strategies for strengthening resilience
  • Know how to respond positively to pressure and demands of working life

Benefits to you
