Resilience is a pre-requisite for anyone to survive in the modern world. Its importance is magnified in high stress roles or environments where the pressure to perform is great, but the resources to achieve the outcome are missing.

The second scenario where resilience is crucial is when things go wrong; your career derails, a major project goes astray or your organisation has a public or private disaster. In all cases we need practical, behaviourally based techniques to ride out the difficult times and respond with improved performance.

Who will benefit

Anyone who wants to improve their resilience skills, in particular if you are required to perform consistently in a high pressure or high stress work environment. Alternatively, anyone whose work life has experienced a significant shock and who needs to rebound quickly and positively. 


  • Defining resilience – ‘what it is, what it isn’t’
  • Physical and emotional wellness
