Learn how to build competence, and maintain resilience for yourself and employees you lead.

This webinar provides a high-level overview of the framework from which the required competence is identified, the tools that support its achievement, and the keys to resilience that then enable sustained performance and success.

The keys to resilience are:

  • Sense of purpose
  • Positive mental attitude
  • Connecting with others
  • Determination
  • Taking control
  • Looking after yourself

Benefits include:

    • Enhanced and sustained performance for you and your team
    • A better working environment for all
    • Ability to get a work/life balance that works for you

During the webinar we will look at how we can all develop each of the keys to resilience, and how you can easily ‘take back control'.
