Personal resilience and wellbeing at work

A half-day workshop

Learning to be resilient remains vitally important for our wellbeing as we emerge from the pandemic and as remote and more flexible ways of working are set to continue. In times of uncertainty it is more essential than ever that we look after ourselves and safeguard our wellbeing and emotional fitness.

This workshop aims to help anybody who would like to strengthen their resilience or would just like to tap into some ways of managing their wellbeing more effectively at work. Techniques are based upon up-to-date, evidence-based approaches that will enable you to learn a range of ways to optimise your personal resilience.

You will identify what you need to do differently to maintain your wellbeing and prioritise your personal resilience in your working environment. You can discover ways to deal with challenges, such as negative emotions and feelings of overwhelm to help your mental fitness.
