Psychological Resilience is attracting increasing attention in workplace discussions and is valued as an important employee attribute.

Resilience is sometimes seen as an inherent trait that someone either does or doesn’t possess, however resilience can be learnt and continually developed over the lifespan, especially if the environment encourages and nurtures personal growth.

Leaders can play a critical role in developing resilience in the workplace. By consistently following a few key principles, leaders can be sources of encouragement and support for employees to continually improve, bounce back, develop an internal locus, and to have a positive, forward-looking outlook.

This one-day masterclass will focus on self-assessment and reflection to evaluate how well participants are modelling and developing personal resilience, as well as how to grow resilience in others.
