Raising Individual Resilience
Adapting to change
In today’s world of constant change and pressures, we need a wabi-sabi world view where we accept transience and imperfection, and adapt through agility and flexibility of thought.
Easier said than done!
Research shows that high levels of resilience can deliver valuable outcomes such as faster recovery from setbacks, more useful responses to the challenge of uncertainty, improved ability to function in a constant state of flux. Resilience is not a fixed trait that is ‘hard wired’ into us. It is a way of thinking. Just like a muscle, we can practice and strengthen our thinking patterns, preferences, and behaviors. Over time, we can become stronger at accepting and overcoming challenges and adapting to change.
This workshop introduces an effective Resilience Model through the delivery of hands-on, experiential activities.
The Skinny: 3 things you will do in this session
- Explore how the Resilience Model can be used to recover and rebound
- Identify Resilience strengths and how to find strengths in one’s weaknesses
- Apply tips and techniques to enable peak performance more consistently
