Resilience in Leadership

Leadership Academy

This one day programme will support you to review your understanding of resilience in the workplace, build on current strengths and develop a toolkit to build resilient work environments.

Currently resilience is a 'hot topic' in leadership, it connects to well-being, health and safety, commercial survival, managing change, and managing crises. We talk about resilient individuals, teams and organisations. Yet many have not thought carefully about what resilience really means in leadership. In this workshop you can expect to work through definitions of resilience in your context, examine the principles of resilience, adaptive resilience and grit; understand the needs of your own organisation and develop a toolkit to support you and your team to demonstrate resilient behaviours and enhance the power of your team and the individuals within it. Leave this course equipped to be a supportive leader capable of leading through changing circumstances effectively, enable your groups to survive and thrive and create new ways forward in a changing world.
