Building Resilient Teams

– Virtual or face to face
– Typically 12-16 participants per session
– Interactive
– Approx. 1.5 hours

Resilience is often seen as a soft subject, but with recent research from MIND showing that 42% of people polled had considered resigning due to work stress and 30% feeling they could not talk openly with their line manager about feeling stressed, managing staff in a way that promotes resilience has to be of paramount importance. Without resilience individuals struggle and when the going gets tough teams fall apart rather than pull together. As a manager you are in a unique position to make a positive difference. This practical, interactive course is designed to explore how.
