Resilience and Personal Performance, a one-day workshop

Resilience and personal performance and linked. Resilient people are better able to cope with unexpected or high demand, and they are more likely to grow stronger through adversity than to be crushed by it.

Resilience refers to the robustness in individuals, teams and organisations that enables them to perform consistently in times of unexpected or high demand. The ability to ‘bounce back’ ensures continuity and give a critical strategic advantage to the business, but also helps protects the individuals it employs. Organisational resilience starts with and relies on the robustness of every member of staff. Resilient organisations demonstrate high employee morale, respect for the individual, and employee involvement at all levels. People feel more empowered and included, they are better at problem-solving, are more creative and they tolerate the uncertainty of change better.

Improving resilience is within the reach of any organisation prepared to take the first few steps in that direction. As part of such an initiative, this one-day workshop enables participants to understand personal resourcefulness, introduces them to notions of resilience and provides them with an approach and practical exercises with which to develop greater personal psychological and emotional resilience.

This is particularly appropriate for  managers who, working between the dual imperatives of organisational demand and support for their staff, can overlook their own needs. Encouraging good self-care and reflective practices leads to better self management, resourcefulness and productivity.

Most people are more resilient than they realise. This workshop enables attendees to identify their preferred coping strategies, and develop the positive characteristics associated with personal resilience.

Don’t Go to War With Stress

Fighting talk doesn’t win battles, and most fights can be avoided.

But in a world where understanding and diplomacy are seen as ‘backing down’ , what hope is there for managing stress in a mature and responsible way?

If we see stress as “the new enemy”, there’s little hope for détente.
