Benefits

We live a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world. Many people are working to shorter timescales, have higher workloads and are carrying out more complex tasks.

This means we often have to work to higher expectations and learn to handle the demands this makes on us.

This workshop shows you:

  • how to develop your personal resilience
  • the ability to work well in pressured situations
  • how to increase your capacity to maintain performance and enjoy your work.

Objectives

Participants will learn how to manage personal reactions and develop mental toughness and resilience in challenging situations. You’ll learn to recognise signs of pressure and the techniques to handle it.

Please note this is the standard course outline. We can tailor the course to meet your specific requirements. 

Session Design

This course features three 90 minute Virtual Adobe Sessions, which are all designed to be stand alone.

What will I learn?

Session 1 - What Makes someone Resilient?

Components of Resilience

  • The ‘grand definition’ of resilience.
  • The benefits of increased resilience for individuals and companies.
  • The 8 components of resilience; assessment of each participant’s personal strength in each.
  • Strategies to raise each of the 8 components.

This session introduces the concept of resilience and the benefits of becoming more resilient. Attendees will look at 8 attributes of a resilient person and will identify their strengths and gaps. Strategies will be given to raise each component.

Session 2 – How to Identify when Stress Levels are Rising

Physiological Effects of Stress

  • The pressure/strain continuum: identifying the drivers that move us towards strain.
  • Our brain’s response to stress – exploring how we evaluate events and how that determines the physical response.
  • The health implications of stress.
  • The early warning signs – being able to spot when you are moving up the continuum.
  • Defining your current position on the continuum.

Managing our Responses to Events:

  • How our experiences shape our event filters.
  • Cognitive restructuring and self-talk – how to modify our responses by changing our story.

This session explores the neuroscience behind stress and how to spot the warning signs in ourselves and others. It helps individuals to ‘change their story’ as we explore how it is OUR evaluation of events that determines our physical response.

Session 3 - Tools and Strategies to Combat Stress

Increasing Resilience

  • Nutrition – food sources that can reduce cortisol and adrenaline spikes.
  • Breathing, Physiology (power pose and anchoring), Visualisation.
  • The benefits of exercise.
  • Mindfulness – gratitude and being in the ‘now’.
  • The Locus of Control – understanding where to increase your circle of influence and when to simply accept.

This session focuses on some simple tools and strategies to help individuals calm down their physical response to perceived stressful situations.
