Strengthening your Personal Resilience

Human Resource Management

Course Duration: One Day

Course Overview

Resilience is about personal control and attitude combined with motivation to be resilient. Attitudes are constructed from thoughts, emotions and feelings. Strengthening resilience is about making attitudes more robust – a ‘will do’ attitude, as opposed to a ‘can do’ attitude. It is about regulating thoughts and feelings to arrive at a robust attitude towards a stressful event, because the perceived benefits of being resilient outweigh the alternatives.
