Developing Resilience

Start Dates: TBC

Duration: 2 Day Book Now

Programme overview

Resilience (or resiliency) is our ability to adapt and bounce back when things don’t go as planned. Resilient people don’t wallow or dwell on failures; they acknowledge the situation, learn from mistakes, and then move forward. In this course, we’ll examine resilience: what it is, why we need it, and how to develop it; so that we have the strength and fortitude to overcome adversity, and to keep on moving forward towards our dreams and our goals. We should have the courage to go after our dreams, despite the fact that we’re going to fail from time to time: it’s an inevitable part of living. Being resilient does not mean that a person doesn’t experience difficulty or distress. It means that when we do fail, we bounce back and we have the strength to learn the lessons we need to learn.
