The demands of the modern working environment often call upon us to do more with less. This can challenge our performance, particularly during peak periods. This course will help you raise your awareness of stress, pressure and challenge, and recognise your own resilience strategies. Plus, you’ll gain the skills to actively integrate new techniques to build resilience and enable optimal performance at work.

Managing your energy and emotional state increases your ability to respond to stressors and handle relationships more effectively. Recognising your own thought patterns and exercising control helps direct focus and performance. Using the Resilience Roadmap, you’ll learn how to apply daily techniques that will help develop new habits and build your own and others resilience.
