Resilience in Science:

Being resilient is about adapting to adversity or set-backs in any shape or form involving life and career. Set backs happen to all of us and can be small OR large at the time, but still require an action plan to bounce back, or better still… bounce forward.

Resilience is not something to be afraid of – it’s the ONE THING that gives you clarity and a clear focus. Like a muscle, you can grow resilience in any environment, at any stage of life and career. It will set you up to be successful, achieve what you want to achieve, make problem solving easier, and give you a fresh perspective to see challenges as opportunities.


About the WorkShop

What will be covered:

  • Understanding your personal response to adversity (no right or wrong, it is what it is)

  • Expanding your tools to choose an improved response when things hit the fan (and they will)

  • Creating a resilience action plan to use in life, work, and play (it is possible)

What to expect:

  • A dynamic, action orientated workshop

  • Walk away with more resilience tools in your toolkit

  • Evidence based strategies

  • Inspiring facilitators who set the scene for learning and application to your personal situation

  • Facilitators who are not afraid to be real and show vulnerability

Changing your current situation, routines and habits can be challenging, and that’s why we do what we do! We provide you the opportunity to cultivate strategies to bring out the best in you, so you can thrive and not just survive in life and career.
