Resilience is a person’s ability to recover, thrive and succeed during challenge, change and adversity. It is also their ability to develop a thicker coat of armour to prevent the impact of future stresses. And yet applying resiliency when in a difficult moment can be challenging for many people.
What we are finding is that resilience is being lost and this is having a detrimental impact on individuals and businesses alike.

By using simple steps, we help participants understand where their resilience is low and help them to develop this in themselves and others around them.
We need to re-learn resilience which is about passion, drive, motivation, being flexible and having realistic expectations of yourself. If we don’t, it will lead to fatigue, depression anxiety, burnout, resentment, ill health which impacts individuals and business.
