BUILDING RESILIENCE

Virtual: 120 minutes
In-person: 180 minutes
Lunch and Learn: 60 minutes


Resilience is often referred to as ‘the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties’ or ‘the ability to spring back into shape’.


The most dangerous thing about stress is how easily it can creep up on us to deplete our levels of resilience. We get used to it. It starts to feel familiar - even normal. We don’t notice how much it’s affecting us, even as it takes a heavy toll.


Now more than ever, teams may well be appearing to cope with the ‘new normal’, when in fact they might be struggling. Many organisations wait until stress has taken hold before offering development that, if provided too late, can act as only a sticking plaster.

In this module, we work together to identify whether the resilience we have is through nature or nurture. A pre-module questionnaire encourages people to reflect on their personal resilience levels before debating opportunities during the module to build our ‘bounce-back-ability’.


At the end of this course, participants will:

  • Understand what resilience is and where it comes from.

  • Consider stressors and current healthy and unhealthy coping mechanisms.

  • Take stock of personal resilience levels.

  • Identify resilience thresholds.

  • Take control of personal resilience to identify opportunities for development.

  • Reflect on ten ways to build resilience and identify areas of action.
