Resilient Leadership

Learn how to remain a strong leader in the face of uncertainty, frequent setbacks and new challenges. Gain practical tools and strategies to guide your organisation through difficult times, including the ability to recognise neurobiological responses to stress, understand how thoughts affect emotional reactions and utilise coping strategies for you and your team.
You’ll emerge with a ‘challenge’ mindset and the ability to appraise adverse events effectively, avoid negative attributions and blame, provide support and reduce stress across your team and organisation.
As a resilient, inspiring leader, you will handle adversity with greater skill and unite your team to emerge from challenges stronger than before.
