Workshop: Developing your Resilience

By Andy Whittle and Grace Clifford

Brussels: 27th April 2016

Resilience is a person’s capacity to respond to pressure and the demands of daily life. At work, as in life, resilient people are better able to deal with the demands placed upon them, especially where those demands might require them to be dealing with constantly changing priorities and a heavy workload.

Resilience is not a characteristic gifted to some individuals and not others.

Most people think that a combination of intelligence, long working hours and lots of experience allows people to thrive in potentially hostile working environments. In fact, it is those with resilience who cope best with challenges like constant organisational change and upheaval, impending staff cutbacks, looming deadlines, argumentative meetings and incessant competition from business rivals.

The good news is that although some people seem to be born with more resilience than others, those whose resilience is lower can learn how to boost their ability to cope, thrive and flourish when the going gets tough. (Centre for Confidence and Well-Being, 2006)

In this interactive and dynamic workshop, you will learn strategies for building up your natural resilience to the stresses and strains of modern life.

Transformational Change and the Pippi Longstockings Principle

By Lars Sudmann

Brussels: 13 April 2016

Sometimes there are areas where it seems impossible to change, and sometimes it just “clicks” and change happens almost instantly. In this session we will dive into the heart of change, especially on personal change and will explore what are the factors behind these click moments. The focus of our exploration will be the foundational core beliefs and internal dialogues that we all have.

Drawing on years of experience as a change leader on an organisational, team, and personal level, Lars will work with you to explore your own “click moments”, and especially on how to work with the Pippi Longstockings principle.
