Emotional resilience is widely recognised as a key driver of wellbeing. Anyone can improve their resilience through effective training and development.
Our half day course offers all staff the opportunity to develop their emotional resilience. This is an essential skill if we are to learn to cope in these challenging times. As a result, delegates will learn how to reduce the impact of stress and susceptibility to it.
The course includes practical and interactive learning, as well as theory. Delegates will come to understand how to bounce back from difficulties with a greater sense of self responsibility and confidence.
On the back of this training, managers and employees will learn:
- how resilience, stress and pressure relate to one another in the workplace;
- how to increase their ability to cope with change;
- how to bounce back from setbacks effectively and with greater flexibility;
- to see setbacks more as challenges, boosting their own personal confidence in the process;
- how an adaptable approach to change improves the ability to:
- solve problems creatively;
- remain optimistic and calm under pressure;
- that developing a positive attitude:
- encourages greater commitment;
- builds enthusiasm;
- enables supportive relationships with colleagues and fellow team members.
It’s all about you
We do our best to make this course about the delegate. We’ve found that’s by far the most successful way of making the content meaningful. With ownership and relatability, delegates feel much more confident in their ability to bounce back from setbacks in the workplace. Self-discovery tools include:
- our resilience assessment tool, with a comprehensive report for each delegate;
- self assessment questionnaires and exercises;
- an individual action plan to take forward from the training.
This course is big on interactive content and we deliver it in an informal style.
To kick off the session we undertake a pre-course resilience assessment. This line in the sand considers the four key components of resilience upon which individuals need to draw. We then relate these components to common workplace situations.
From there, we explore the relationship between resilience and wellbeing and the nine key factors that lead to resilience. That segues into reviewing the relevance of emotional awareness to the same topics.
To make the training ‘real’, each delegate will take away a personal action plan based on the outcomes of the training. The plan will include individual goals to enable each delegate to start taking personal responsibility for improving and developing their own resilience skills to enhance wellbeing in the workplace.
Many organisations we work with combine this course with one of our stress awareness or wellbeing courses.

“…psychological resilience is about adapting and maintaining emotional strength in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or sources of stress. Building resilience helps us manage difficult experiences and maintain positive emotions.”
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
“Emotional resilience not only improves effectiveness at work,but people with higher levels of emotional resilience also enjoy a greater immunity from certain illnesses”
a.“Resilience was defined as a trait or as bouncing back from adversity. Five domains were identified: physical health, mental health, later life, bereavement and trauma. Resilience was considered a predictor of well-being, as a mediator or moderator between adversity and well-being, or as an outcome.”
b.Operationalised definition of resilience
“The definition used (Windle, 2011: 163) is: “The process of effectively negotiating, adapting to, or managing significant sources of stress or trauma. Assets and resources within the individual, their life and environment facilitate this capacity for adaptation or ‘bouncing back’ in the face of adversity.”
