What is resilience training?

Mental health costs UK employers an estimated £26 billion each year*.
Developing your employees’ personal resilience could significantly reduce the impact of mental health on your workforce and improve business performance.
Resilient employees cope better with adversity and are more likely to continue performing well when faced with challenges, as well as being better able to maintain their mental wellbeing.
The workshop help employees and/or managers to build and maintain resilience within the working environment.

If you are wondering if resilience training is right for your company, ask yourself:

  • Would your organisation benefit from a more resilient workforce?
  • Is your organisation supporting employee mental wellbeing?
  • Do your employees know how to maximise their personal resilience in order to work to their full potential in the workplace?
  • Do your managers, team leaders and supervisors know how to create resilient teams?

Who is it suitable for?

For all employees:
This workshop provides a safe and open environment to discuss personal resilience. We explore different factors influencing resilience and ask delegates to reflect on how these affect them individually. We also consider the relationship between stress, wellbeing and performance, as well as the drivers for resilience and the attributes of a resilient person.
It provides delegates with the opportunity to create an individual plan for building and maintaining their own personal resilience. A range of tools, strategies and techniques are explored and practised so delegates are fully equipped to use this following the training at work and in their personal lives. All delegates will receive a comprehensive workbook and certificate of attendance (if required).
For management groups:
In addition to the content above about developing personal resilience, we can add in a ‘creating a resilient team’ module. This focuses on the manager’s role in building resilience and supporting wellbeing.

This workshop is suitable for managers, supervisors and team leaders who wish to improve their personal resilience and build resilient teams. As well as employees who want or need to improve their personal resilience.

Key objectives of the workshop:

  • Define resilience in their own words and understand why it is important
  • Recognise the relationship between pressure and stress as well as their own physical, emotional, behavioural and cognitive symptoms of stress
  • Learn the key ingredients for resilience
  • Determine areas for development in their own personal resilience
  • Challenge negative thinking patterns
  • Identify their social support network and where support may need strengthening
  • Pinpoint key lifestyle factors which impact on their natural level of resilience.
