Resilience can be defined as the capacity to prepare for, recover from and adapt in the face of stress, adversity, trauma or challenge.
"It is your reaction to adversity, not adversity itself that determines how your life’s story will develop."
- Dieter Uchtdorf
In this course, you will explore the common traits of the resilient, so you can become more resilient yourself. You will gain insights into how to:
- Balance your thinking and emotions
- Take responsibility, but only for things you can control
- Balance continual improvement with being satisfied with enough
- Develop appropriate language, values, beliefs and a purpose for resilience.
Supporting tools for resilience and well-being will also be considered, such as time management and perspective taking.
Finally the physiology of resilience will be reviewed, from the importance of mindfulness and laughter to sleep and exercise.
Through these sessions, you will appreciate that while stress is inevitable; its negative consequences are not.
Who should attend
This course is for anyone wanting to become more resilient and anyone who wants to run their schedule, rather than have their schedule run them.
By the end of this course you will:
Have a toolbox of tools and techniques for becoming more resilient.
Be more able to manage your feelings, thoughts and behaviours when things go wrong.
What's covered on the course
You will conduct a ‘personal audit’, to gauge the number of resilience traits you currently practice. Such an audit will help you identify which aspects of resilience development are most relevant to you. The bulk of the course will then give you the opportunity to identify some practical ideas that can help embed resilience in your daily life. The ideas are likely to have physical symbols, so you will leave the training day with your own ‘box of resilience’
About Your Trainer
Dr Mark Hughes is Director of mch: positive impact, a staff development company that works for the charitable sector. Mark started his career at the international consultancy firm McKinsey & Company, where intensive, 15 hour days were not uncommon. He then worked as Chief Executive of Rumbalara, an Aboriginal sporting and community development organisation. Unbeknown to him, Mark joined the organisation when it was on the brink of insolvency. Mark also has governance experience, having been Chairman of Evidence to Impact, a social enterprise which improves public health. During his time as Chairman, Mark needed to ‘step-in’, when the organisation’s CEO died suddenly. This occurred at the same time as getting divorced and buying and renovating a new home; while all the while being solely responsible for running mch. Consequently, Mark has considerable experience of remaining resilient in tough times.
