By the end of this course you will have learned:

  • What stress is and what causes it.
  • How developing your personal resilience is linked to your attitudes and behaviours.

There are no prerequisites for this resilience training course.

It is aimed at anyone who would like to learn how to manage their stress more effectively.

This course is focused on stress at work, but the techniques you learn will be equally beneficial in all aspects of your life. Professional resilience and personal resilience go hand-in-hand.

It is very useful if you can bring notes of a few stressful situations that you are currently dealing with or have dealt with recently.

Discussing how the resilience skills you are being taught can be applied in real-life situations is a great way to bring them to life.

Resilience is the ability to tolerate and recover quickly from difficult situations and psychological hardship.

Resilient people are able to cope with challenges and recover from setbacks more quickly than others.

Resilient people are not dreamers. They experience life’s difficulties in the same way as others. However, they are able to look through their current stress and focus on the future, not allowing their stress to overwhelm them in the moment.

For more details see our article: What Does Resilience Mean & Why Is It Important?

This course is for anyone who struggles with stress and managing the ups and downs of day-to-day work.

Telltale signs that this course would work well for you include frequent or habitual:
1. Feelings of stress and being out of control.
2. Catastrophising when things don’t go well.
3. Perfectionism and black and white thinking
4. Jumping to conclusions and taking things personally.
5. Focusing on the negative.


Resilience is a learned skill.

Like all things in life, some people are naturally resilient people and bounce back from setbacks easily. Other people struggle more and have less natural mental agility and self-awareness.

However, everyone can build resilience and improve how they handle stress and bounce back from failures.

Developing emotional resilience, whether personal or professional resilience, requires a good knowledge of the tools resilient people use (for example positive psychology and focusing on positive emotions) and also how to apply them.

Different people categorise resilience skills in different ways.

That said the 5 key skills that are often listed as building resilience are:

  1. Change The Narrative / Mental Agility
  2. Compassion
  3. Breaks & Self-Awareness
  4. Meditation & Mindfulness
  5. Maintaining Connections / Social Support

These skills are key development areas (so called “pillars of resilience”) in any leadership development program.

Having the self-awareness to control your thinking patterns is critical to personal resilience.
