Resilience for a VUCA world
Resilience has become a 'hot topic' as the demands of working with uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity and volatility are compounded by speed and resource constraints. Organisations are demanding performance under pressure, allied to constant adaptation. If resilience is to be seen as more than a synonym for stress management it is important to understand what we mean by resilience and what 50 years of research has established that is relevant to HR practitioners.
In this session Carole Pemberton will consider the degree to which resilience is genetic or learnt, and separate out the preventive power of resilience from the regaining of resilience. She will position resilience as an outcome of the availability of individuals to access a range of qualities. She will identify the key contributors to resilient performance and provide an opportunity for participants to consider their own resilience. She will consider relevance of developing resilient behaviours at the individual, team and organisational level.
Dr Carole Pemberton has led her own consultancy for 20 years. Prior to this she worked for a UK Business School and a major consultancy. She now works as an executive and career coach, developer of coaches, coach supervisor and author. She is Visiting Professor in Business Coaching at the University of Ulster and a Fellow of the CIPD and the Career Development Institute. Her doctoral study looked at the process of regaining resilience after career setback. She is recognised for the depth of her understanding of resilience and her most recent book Resilence Coaching (McGraw Hill) was nominated as Coaching Book of the Year. She coaches widely across the private and public sectors, and her client work includes working with UNICEF leaders in war zones where resilience is a prerequisite of dealing with complexity and uncertainty while facing physical danger.
She is the co-author of the CIPD High Performance Toolkit and in 2017 is launching with the Institute of Future Leadership an online programme in Resilient Leadership.

When & Where
CIPD Kent Branch
We are the Kent branch of CIPD - the professional body for HR and people development. The not-for-profit organisation champions better work and working lives and has been setting the benchmark for excellence in people and organisation development for more than 100 years.
We have a wide range of organisations and CIPD membership and we respond to this with a full selection of CPD and networking opportunities.
Due to the geographical spread of the county we have 3 area groups – Mid Kent, West Kent and East Kent. Between them they regularly hold sessions with guest speakers on subjects requested by the members. Most events are supported by local companies who host the events and provide an opportunity to meet other HR practitioners.
We also appreciate the specialisms within HR and have Special Interest Groups that meet regularly and occasionally have speakers. These groups include Health and Social Care and Senior Practitioners. Similarly we have smaller bespoke groups, Self Managed Learning Groups that operate throughout the county. These include the Coaching Groups in East Kent and West Kent. We encourage the creation of new groups so if there is not an area covered, why not set one up?
Come along to an event and meet our friendly and welcoming committee members and the wonderful HR community of Kent!
