Emotional Resilience

This workshop is available as an in-house and can be customised and adapted to meet your specific outcome requirements, either online or face-to-face.

In our rapidly evolving working environment, that requires us to adapt to constant changes, emotional resilience is a huge asset for individuals and organisations.

Emotional resilience is one’s ability to cope and adapt to stressful situations and difficulties, to be able to bounce back when life or work challenges occur. Building emotional resilience is the only sure way to gain control back and take charge of your work and personal life.

We live in a time of tremendous political, environmental, and economic upheaval, increasing pressure at work and in life, leading to performance anxiety and high levels of stress, leaving many feeling helpless, frustrated, drained, disappointed, sad and struggling with the downswing of emotions. There are some challenging days and times when you think that things are beyond your control. Being emotionally intelligent can mean that you can do all this without becoming selfish, manipulating, ineffective or a push-over.
