Building Personal and Professional Resilience – Public Workshop

  • Building Personal & Professional Resilience workshop – now publicly available

    We live in turbulent times.  Technology is developing at a lightening fast pace, the world is rapidly changing, and global events impact us here at home.  So to is the world of work changing and the pressures it places on us to do more, better, faster and cheaper in order to stay ahead of the curve.  In my work I regularly see the symptoms of taking too much on.  Burnout, increasing levels of stress and frustration, an inability to cope and depression just to name a few.  I see Mother’s who feel guilty because they can’t seem to ‘do it all’; Managers who are working ridiculous hours and sacrificing their own well-being because they’re afraid of being judged ‘not capable’; and staff who turn up to work, go through the motions and generally wish they were somewhere else.  Feeling under appreciated, over-worked and kinda stuck in a rut.

    Have I just described you or someone you know?  If so, relax.  You’re not alone.  Modern day pressures and challenges are affecting us all and many, many people are struggling to cope.  This is not a failing and there is something you can do about it.

    Resilience is the ability to bounce back and even succeed despite adverse events occurring in your life.  And let’s face it.  Life is not always a bed of roses is it?  Most of the things that affect us are not in our control.  We’re helpless and vulnerable in the face of these events and situations.  Now your ability to be resilient depends on many factors but the most exciting thing about them is that they are ALL IN YOUR CONTROL.
