About This Course

Our bodies and our minds are like bridges. They withstand great stress and pressure from the heavy traffic of everyday life. However, over time, these stresses and strains can weaken the bridge. Resilience is our personal infrastructure to cope with the stresses, strains, crises, and demanding situations and bounce back from them. In short, resilience is the ability of the body and the mind to recover from situations and adapt to your reality.

This 3-hour workshop, through storytelling, group processes, and exercises, brings forth the factors that show the importance of developing resilience and explore strategies to build resilient teams.

Skill Drill 1: The Resilient Mindset

Understand the mindset of resilient people through this experiential storytelling segment. Some of the traits of resilient people are:

  • The knowledge that what they are experiencing at the moment is not permanent; instead, only a phase
  • Can label their emotions
  • Hold positive views about themselves, their abilities, and what the future holds
  • Have an internal locus of control
  • View themselves as fighters and not victims
  • Take care of themselves – body and mind

Skill Drill 2: The Hero’s Journey

In this section, participants will introspect on life events and personal struggles, identify unique superpowers along with the factors that drive them, and see how they can be used to build resilience in the future.

Skill Drill 3: Building Personal Resilience

Resilience is a quality that is not inborn but can be built. In this skill drill, participants will learn about the tools and strategies that will help cultivate personal resilience through day-to-day behaviors and habits.

Skill Drill 4: Developing and Leading Resilient Teams

With a personal resilience program in place, participants will now be ready to explore strategies to support their teams in becoming more resilient. Participants will explore strategies to build teams that will withstand adversities and changes in the organization. This includes building empathy for team members and their situations, being more supportive, and building trust within the team.
