Strengthening Personal Resilience

Strengthening Personal Resilience

23 March 2017, Central Birmingham - facilitated by Professor Derek Mowbray


Resilience is a key component in the primary prevention of stress at work. Resilience is the capacity to mobilise personal resources to form an attitude to tolerate and overcome adverse events without experiencing stress, and to increase psychological immunity as a consequence of such events.

Building resilience will help ensure that your workforce is motivated, engaged and maintains performance through periods of uncertainty and change whilst minimising the stressful effects of such events.

Some aspects of resilience are personality dependent whilst others are skills determined. All elements can be learnt and strengthened.

The programme explains the impact that adverse events has on people, and how resilience is about forming an attitude towards an event that determines how the individual copes with it and become stronger as a result. The programme includes exercises that strengthen resilience which can be practiced as used in times of challenge.
