Get 30% discount off Being and effective councillor:  Resilience - difficult conversations : 17 November, if you attend this seminar and 'Influencing Skills', 27 October .  Offer ends 4 October.



Being an elected Member can be tough: the public profile, credibility and expectations placed upon elected members are numerous, requiring the maintenance of high levels of energy and performance.  Carrying out multiple roles and working with a variety of people and managing a variety of different roles and situations (not to mention getting the ‘work – life balance’ right) requires resilience.

Personal resilience is about maintaining a sense of wellbeing, being mentally strong, effectively meeting different demands and performing at one’s best on behalf of individuals, communities as  well as being an effective leader. This is a very practical seminar that will provide each participant with methods and helpful ideas to manage the pressures they face and enable them to be able to maximise the positive aspects of being an elected member.

This will be an interactive session with plenty of opportunity for discussion and   sharing experiences.


Speakers include:
