Emotional Resilience: building self awareness and self care


WHY should you attend?

This class builds actual workplace self awareness at a practical level which can be used immediately. Self awareness is the primary building block of emotional resilience. In turn, emotional resilience is applied emotional intelligence. It gives us the capacity to be 'bold' - to speak up, to share our ideas, take risks and use our full potential. It gives us greater strength to appropriately respond to workplace pressures and challenges and helps build robust, collaborative relationships. Our experience shows that emotionally resilient people play a vital role in creating a ‘can do’ and collaborative culture. 

HOW will the class run?

We create an environment where people can look at themselves with safety and lightness. The class is lively, experiential and practical – and fosters actual emotional resilience. This in turn, enables people to better land on their feet no matter what happens!

WHAT will you learn?

Participants will learn practical skills that will:

  • Help meet personal and workplace challenges
  • Extend the capacity for flexibility in the face of complexity
  • Encourage bold thinking
  • Enable tricky situations to be handled with confidence
  • Foster robust collaborative relationships that will achieve greater sustained effectiveness.

WHO is it for?

This class is for all people who want to take their next step to ensure they are emotionally resilient. No matter where you are at, this class will help you know yourself more deeply and with greater compassion for yourself.
