Building Resilience and Stress Management with David Lacey

A full day workshop, 9:30am – 4pm with breaks

Resilience is the ability to recover quickly from setbacks and tackle challenges head on. Resilient people have the flexibility, energy, mental agility and networks of support to consistently perform at their highest level. Becoming resilient doesn’t require extraordinary ability.

Resilient people see challenges as opportunities, maintain a positive outlook, find meaning in their struggle, and successfully adapt to adversity. If these skills don’t come naturally, you can develop them. We are innately wired to adapt to change and difficulty. The key is to be able to tap into this wiring by practicing behaviours, habits, and strategies that help us to thrive.

This will be a lively workshop looking at building and maintaining resilience. We will look at stress, it’s causes and symptoms, and a variety of ways of limiting its effect at work and at home. We will use a selection of techniques, tools and toys to find methods that work for you. You will receive lots of things to take away and try, as well as a comprehensive workbook to refer to later.

Through enquiry into the emotional, physical, and mental aspects of stress and resilience we will find ways to optimise levels of energy and pressure, to help you to remain focused and maintain high performance. 

On this workshop you will:

  • Develop an awareness of stress, its symptoms and effects
  • Look at resilience building strategies
  • Explore the 5 Pillars of Resilience
  • Prepare a resilience building plan
  • Study the Accountability Ladder
  • Identify the point when further assistance may be needed.
  • Receive a 24-page workshop manual and a number of stress management toys, tools and other give-aways.

This workshop will be a mix of tutor led input, small and whole group discussion, as well as practical techniques and exercises.
