Building Resilience - Letting Go and Moving Forward

Date and Time


UC 442


In today’s high pressure work environments resilience is considered a necessary attribute that enables individuals to thrive in the face of everyday work-pressures and stresses. Building and maintaining resilience is an ongoing process that requires time, effort and engagement in thoughtful behaviours that can help you let go and move forward. Death, job loss and other big challenges can leave you feeling stressed, deflated, fearful, angry, and so can the day to day issues like conflict at home or work, being disappointed or let down by someone you care about, a new job not working out as you imagined. Reacting to these things with a flood of strong emotions and a sense of uncertainty can have a long term impact if you don't manage them effectively.

Learn what it takes to adapt well over time to difficult situations and stressful conditions. Develop the skills to be more able to adapt and cope in ways which help you manage adversity, let go and move forward.
