Resilience in Leadership

Building Psychological Flexibility
Blocks spelling out "resilience."

Why take this course?

Ultimately, a team’s success is determined by its staying power, rather than its singular goal achievement. Think dynasty rather than
one time victory. A crucial ingredient in long term success goes by
many names – resilience, sandpaper, even grit. And it is crucial
because the ever changing work landscape provides multiple crises
and potential team breaking setbacks, and also many opportunities
that resilient teams will seize and use to launch further success.
Want your team to be resilient? Then get your grit on.
This virtual and dynamic session is designed for open minded and
forward thinking leaders who are seeking an understanding of the
psychological principles behind, and the practical and proven tools
used, to realize team resilience.

  • Learn how to use science based best practice strategies, tools and tactics to help your team adapt and bounce back
