Building Personal Resilience

The Public Sector and Civil Service are currently facing an unprecedented level of upheaval. At a time following austerity measures and ruthless budget cuts it seems that the only certainty is change.

These changes can be immensely stressful and sometimes harmful to the mental health and wellbeing of those working within these industries, as navigating new systems and facing uncertainty can cause considerable anxiety. 

Developing greater levels of personal resilience can help individuals not only weather the changes but even actively flourish. While some may shy away from seeking help in the face of turbulence, it is important to remember that resilience is not an innate quality but a skill that must be developed, like any other professional tool.

This half day workshop offers participants an opportunity to reflect on currant changes and look at the impact of change and uncertainty on us as individuals. Building Personal Resilience is a particularly insightful and practical course, featured within our Professional Development Skills series, and offers practical tips and techniques to help develop personal resilience.
