Learning and Development departments in most organisations are seen as the “go-to” people and are all things development to all people in the company. Everyone expects your support, enthusiasm, encouragement and patience, from Inductions to Board development, Apprenticeships to MBAs you are the main support and coaches in your business. But who supports you? What happens when your energy drops, or you are feeling challenged by spinning too many plates?
Resilience is not something that people just have, it is a skill that can be learnt just like any other. We all have different reactions to different situations because we are all unique, so exploring your own personal story of resilience helps you to build the picture of who you are, and what you need, to keep performing to the best of your ability.
In this 60 minute session, Linda shares her own story of resilience; what resilience is in relation to wellbeing; and through a practical breakout session, shows how you can start connecting with your own story of resilience.
