Course description

The workplace can be rich with opportunity. It's a place where we can learn and grow, develop and contribute, build our careers, earn our living and provide for our family. It can also be challenging, demanding and exhausting.

Everyone has to cope with the stresses and strains of work and everyday life. Challenges and change are a constant for all of us. Some of these involve taking some degree of risk, while some may be crises or emergencies that demand our immediate attention.

You will have developed coping mechanisms during your life that help you deal with familiar adverse situations and many unfamiliar ones. Some of your coping mechanisms however, aren't so effective and can even make situations worse.

What separates those who can hold their own and keep going in times of adversity is a cluster of habits that centre on resilience. This workshop will explore what resilience is and the habits that strengthen your resilience enabling you to:

• Deal with pressure and handle stress
• Maintain your motivation and engagement
• Develop and sustain self-esteem
• Bounce back from set-backs and disappointments
• Transform your work life

N.B. There is a Resilience & Wellbeing module on the Intranet featuring videos and downloadable resources.

Training objectives

You can expect a highly interactive, facilitated workshop with a variety of individual and group exercises. 

The workshop explores 5 dimensions of resilience, the physical, psychological, social, professional and spiritual. In each dimension you will learn how making small, achievable changes – in mind-set, approach, conduct and daily practice – can significantly enhance your resilience and wellbeing.

You will also:

Practice using a tool that helps you manage pressures in the workplace

Learn mental techniques that help build your resilience

The trainer will ask you to identify actions you are going to take to build your resilience after the workshop. 

Learning outcomes

By the end of the workshop we want you to be able to:

  • Define what resilience is

  • Identify the habits and behaviours of resilient people

  • Reflect on the practices and beliefs that either support or undermine your resilience

  • Adopt practices that build your resilience

Additional Information

There will be a 45 minute break for lunch around 12-30.
