Event description


Developing Resilience: Training for Managers
1-day open training course

Summary of Course Content

1 Day Course

Resilience is now a key competence for managers working under pressure during periods of change. This training course helps managers improve their personal resilience as well as supporting the resilience of those they work with. There will be plenty of opportunities, through facilitated discussion, for delegates to share insights and best practise.


It is not possible to make progress without experiencing occasional setbacks and disappointments; however it is the way in which managers react and respond to problems that will determine the success or failure of the organisation.

Resilience is the ability to maintain your normal level of performance, or improve on it, during times of change and adversity. The key to this training course is the understanding that the positive attitudes and behaviours which generate resilience can be developed. Practical tools are provided on the course.

The theme of the day involves introducing areas of personal resilience and how this can be improved. During this process facilitated discussion will be used to link individual resilience to both team and organisational resilience so that managers can prepare practical action plans at the end of the course.

The course is highly interactive and contains a variety of tools and exercises. Delegates receive a comprehensive workbook and access to online resources which can be used post training to improve one or more resilience skills.
