Many organisations and individuals alike have unexpectedly been thrust into a new reality… A reality where many organisations have had to adapt from face to face meetings and trainings, conferences and sales to holding online meetings, classes and webinars in order to practice social distancing. A reality where hand shaking in the corporate world is seen as the norm of business etiquette to form a connection is now considered a safety hazard for both parties. A reality where certainty and clarity no longer exist (and are unlikely to exist for months to come).
We are all racing to adapt, and at the same time trying to cope with rising levels of stress and anxiety. In addition, the current economic climate and constant workplace disruptions with unpredictable load-shedding has created conditions that are contributing to job uncertainty, financial stress and a reduction in employee well-being and productivity. Generally, employers are cost-cutting and demanding more from fewer employees. They want high levels of productivity and performance and often a company’s success depends on the creativity and dependability of the workforce. Employers want resilient employees, who can navigate through uncertainty and ambiguity, can handle change and pressure and have personal coping strategies that mean they can manage their personal stress levels. Business leaders who are good role models understand that employee health and wellbeing and engagement are a competitive advantage. Economic downturns do not last forever, however constant change and uncertainty are here to stay
Building Resilience is the key to not just coping, but flourishing, in an increasingly complex and volatile world. Imagine having abundant inner strength and resourcefulness to withstand and recover quickly from whatever difficulties life may throw at you. Building resilience within your workforce helps individuals to perform at their highest levels and cope well during periods of change and adversity. Whilst resilience is often thought of as something that individuals are born with (i.e. you either have it or you don’t), research shows that there is much that can be done to help individuals to improve their personal resilience levels.
One of the ways to build resilience is through a Resilience training workshop. This is targeted to employees of all levels, specifically at both management and HR groups. These interventions are aimed at improving levels of resilience within the workforce.
The workshop aims to cover the following:
- What is resilience and why is it so important in our workplaces
- Drivers of resilience in the workplace
- Workplace cultural and structural factors that negatively impact on resilience
- Measuring resilience in the workplace
- Role of the manager in building resilience amongst teams
- Practical ways of building resilience in the workplace
We also provide shorter Resilience building workshops for employees to focus on their internal capacity building. The more resilient an individual, the better they will be able to protect their overall wellbeing and performance levels.
Join us to learn about the factors that drive resilience in the workplace and the practical ways in which you can build a more resilient workforce.
We recognise that every organisation is different. Our specialists can assist with tailoring practical solutions to address the challenges faced by you and your staff.
