Resilience for Leaders



Leaders are rarely taught how to cope with setbacks and failures. When faced with the inevitable disappointments and uncertainties of life, will your leaders  have what it takes to lead themselves through such setbacks and create positive outcomes again? Resilience is the quality that sets good leaders apart from average ones. 


Resilience is the ability to face setbacks  courageously, to manage oneself and others with trust during adversity, and to bounce back stronger and wiser from these difficulties. Imagine if your leaders were able to pick themselves up faster from setbacks, and grow more confident and resilient with every relationship and business setback, ultimately taking on greater aspirations.


Would you like a team that grows stronger with each failure or setback? Ultimately, it isn’t our successes that defines us as leaders, it is our ability to face adversity and to come out stronger each time.


Facilitated by the founder, a psychologist whose  own life story has been one of resilience,, this highly interactive and practical workshop explores causes of executive stress and facilitates the creation of a new mindset and habits that if internalised and practiced, will build leaders’ resilience.
