Work can be rich with opportunity. Through work we can learn and grow, develop and contribute, build our careers, earn our living and provide for our family. It can also be challenging, demanding and exhausting; never more so than in having to adapt recently to the profound changes brought about by Covid-19.


Everyone has to cope with the stresses and strains of work and everyday life, you will have developed coping mechanisms that help you deal with familiar adverse situations and many unfamiliar ones. Some of your coping mechanisms however, aren't so effective and can sometimes make situations worse. What separates those who can hold their own and keep going in times of adversity is a cluster of habits that centre on resilience. This workshop will explore what resilience is and the habits that strengthen your resilience enabling you to:


• Deal with pressure and handle stress
• Maintain your motivation and engagement
• Develop and sustain self-esteem
• Bounce back from set-backs and disappointments
• Transform your work life
