Resilience Workshops

Our resilience workshops are a great way to introduce staff to the key components of resilience. The workshops raise awareness of the relationship between resilience, health and performance, and include practice of simple resilience techniques that can be easily integrated into the working day.

Through their direct personal experience participants discover that they can change the way they think, act and feel at any given time and respond more effectively to the challenges they face.

Our resilience workshops have been specifically designed to address three of the most strongly identified causes of low resilience: prolonged stress, poor sleep, and repetitive thoughts and emotions.
