Event description

Description

Rene Barrett is a highly regarded trainer in leading workshops with staff to build their sense of resilience and wellbeing. Embedding these dispositions improves health and wellbeing performance and happiness.

“Managing the Stretch and Strain” - Building and Sustaining Personal Resilience and Resourcefulness


Introduction

Our workplaces are characterised by enormous change, disruption and uncertainty and for many of us our personal lives are also busy, hectic and demanding. At this time it’s important to stay focused, deliver results and stay resilient. What do we really mean by resilience though? Is it something that anyone can develop? And how does resilience affect performance, wellbeing and happiness?

The last decade has seen the rise of behavioural economics and a growing interest in using it, together with positive psychology, to understand how behaviour influences everything from day-to-day life, to work, to how the economy functions. Happiness, joy, compassion and kindness are much more likely to develop greater collaboration, better quality of service and innovation.

During this fast paced, engaging, uplifting and interactive masterclass Rene will help delegates to explore cutting edge research and practice to equip them to ensure greater resilience, happiness and positive responses to life’s challenges.

We will:

  • Explore the links between psychological wellbeing and physical wellbeing, happiness and resilience
  • Explore how you can build greater personal resilience in yourself and others around you
  • Examine the economics of Happiness and Wellbeing and the implications of these on resilience
  • Consider a range of techniques which you can utilise to build and maintain resilience
  • Reflect personally on your personal levels of resilience and how this relates to those around you
  • Consider material around developing and practising gratitude
