Developing resilience post-pandemic
Why is this training needed?

Resilience is a foundation stone of wellbeing, supporting us to navigate the often-choppy waters of life, work and calling. Paying attention to resilience and wellbeing is not a luxury or an option and turning focused attention to this can be the difference between thriving and surviving.

This workshop aims to provide an:
  • Overview of how resilience can help when things get challenging or difficult
  • Invitation to consider your unique prescription for resilience
  • Introduction to some models, tools, and techniques to support a resilient approach
  • Exploration of the importance and value of boundaries
How does it work?

This will be a three-hour facilitated workshop over Zoom, with opportunities for discussion, individual reflection and sharing of ideas and good practice. The framework of the workshop will draw on principles of positive psychology, as well as some well-known and easy-to-implement models and practices.

About the trainer

This workshop will be facilitated by Nicola Willocks, an accredited and experienced coach and facilitator who is interested in working with people who are committed to their personal and professional development.
