Resilience at work is now recognised as a defining characteristic of employees who deal well with the stresses and strains of the modern workplace. But just how do we respond to pressure and the demands of daily life? How can we bounce back rather than go under?

Michelle Spirit is a regular at our CIPD meetings and will be presenting her take on resilience in a highly engaging way. She will translate her complex research into tools, techniques and approaches that we can all understand and, importantly, apply at work. Join us to find out how you can make a positive difference at work for you, your colleagues and the organisation as a whole.


About the Speaker

  Michelle Spirit

Michelle is the expert emotional resilience adviser for Skills for Care and an Associate for both MIND and In Equilibrium. She has worked with the University of Oxford to help research approaches to resilience building for emergency service personnel with MIND, and with the University of Chichester to develop the country’s first Masters Unit in developing resilience.

She has over 20 years’ experience of leadership, change management and mental health. Early in her career she worked as a mental health nurse, and then as a careers advisor, learning how to help those experiencing difficulty, and those at a crossroads in their life.

Moving into research and development, and management helped her consolidate this work by implementing what she had learnt, and by studying evidence based approaches proven to help people cope with change, difficulty and pressure. This drew her to training as a hypnotherapist and psychotherapist. She has to date helped over 150 organisations and 6200 of their staff understand the practical ways that it is possible to build resilience, manage stress and conflict, and support those with a mental health issue, 94% of whom have rated the service as very good or excellent.
