When an individual is experiencing high levels of change, their capacity to adapt can rapidly be depleted. Resilience—the ability to remain productive during turbulence—helps people achieve better outcomes for themselves and their organizations. This one-day course explains why change can be challenging and introduces a set of seven “change muscles” that help individuals use their energy more effectively as they move through the adaptation process. Participants receive individual feedback on their own resilience, and engage in exercises that provide practice in applying each of the characteristics. They leave with an action plan for strengthening their resilience. Optional additions include a module on leading and managing for resilience, and a module designed to help intact teams explore their collective resilience.
This 1-day workshop is highly interactive. The instructor presents key concepts, then helps the participants build personal connections through discussions, interactive exercises, and games. Participants receive confidential individual feedback based on a questionnaire that is completed in advance of the course. They complete an action plan for developing their personal resilience, and are encouraged to reach out to others in the class to provide mutual support for development.
