Building resilience - making the most of your resources

Tuesday, April 29, 2014
10:00 to 16:00

The programme:

A 1-day master class on building resilience - for you, your team, your organisation - to equip you for the challenges and demands of working in world class healthcare provision.

What enables some of us to thrive in a high pressure environment and perform consistently well whatever happens while others are simply surviving or worse? Much of the thrive/survive equation comes down to resilience…the positive mind-set and the physical capability to bounce back, to see set-backs as challenges and to reframe and reconfigure what can feel like scarce resources to support success.

You will:

  • Explore what we mean by resilience (as distinct from stamina) and the emotional and physical power sources that build resilience
  • Examine the value of resilience in navigating an uncertain climate and getting more from increasingly squeezed resources
  • Experiment with how to work with, rather than under, pressure
  • Develop a resilience ‘toolkit’ and create strategies that support you and your team

The master class will be delivered in a facilitative and coaching style. There will be plenty of time for discussion and experimentation as you develop your more resilient approach.
