Improve Resilience and Personal Performance, a webtalk

Resilience and personal performance are closely linked. Resilience involves a degree of stamina, but more importantly it involves self-belief and persistence.

Resilience refers to the robustness that enables individuals to perform consistently in times of unexpected or high demand. The ability to ‘bounce back’ ensures that we are better able to manage stress and to deal with unexpected events or periods of high demand. Resilient people have the ability to see challenge as a learning opportunity, and setback as a chance to move forward and even failure individuals tend to  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.

We can all improve resilience. By absorbing a few simple ideas and altering a few of our habits, it is within reach for anyone 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 lead 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.

Dialogue is interactive communication that builds shared meaning.
