About the course
Become a more engaged, creative and adaptable leader.
Between increased demands on employee time, high levels of exhaustion, stress, illness, and disengagement, building your personal resilience has never been more important.
What is Resilience and Why Do Leaders Need it?
Resilience is the ability to rebound from the challenges, stresses and pressures that impact our personal and professional lives. It is developed by rejuvenating and replenishing energy in four main areas: physical, emotional, mental and values.
Including resilience training in your leadership toolkit is important, not only for your own wellbeing, but for your ability to empathize with and understand the needs of your team. Resilient leaders have teams that are more engaged, more creative, more satisfied, and better able to adapt with change.
