Individual Resilience and Wellbeing

Course Overview

This two-day programme is for managers, leaders and individuals wishing to deepen their understanding of resilience and wellbeing in the workplace … what it looks like and how to facilitate it.

The World Health Organisation defines wellbeing as “the state in which an individual realises his or her own abilities, can cope with normal stresses of life, can work productively, and is able to make a contribution”. Our programme examines what makes for a sense of wellbeing and explores the impact the workplace can have on teams and individuals within those teams.

Specifically, our programme examines the relationship between wellbeing and resilience … the ability to cope with, and adapt to, new situations and challenging circumstances. We explore how individuals can facilitate a sense of resilience, and the role of managers and leaders in supporting this, as well as introducing our unique resilience facilitators model.
