Enhancing Resilience in Business Parts 1 and 2

Thursday 17 October and Thursday 7 November, 5.30 – 8.00pm

Resilience is defined as the ability to bounce back from adversity, frustration, and misfortune and is essential for an effective leader. This workshop will teach you practical and proven psychology tools that will improve your own resilience in difficult situations so that you can remain in good mental health. The aim of this session is to help you recognise when you might need support and develop self-confidence and motivation. This workshop will identify ways in which you can enhance your own resilience within the business context.

What’s happening?

Through a series of workshop activities, we will explore over the 2 sessions:

  • What is resilience?
  • Why is it important for business success?
  • Strategies to manage stress and build resilience
