Building resilience can be delivered in formats ranging from a half-day in-person session to a 4 month blended learning journey.
A personal resilience program that helps participants master the mental fitness toolkit used by elite performers in sport and business to excel under pressure and recover from setbacks.
Rooted in the science of behaviour change, Building Resilience fosters self-awareness and strong habits through assessments, deliberate practice and spaced repetition.
Learn about performance under pressure from experts at the front of the room and guests like Hayley Wickenheiser and Johann Koss brought in by video.
Perform, recover, grow
As organizations seek to move quicker, adapt faster and initiate disruption rather than respond to it pressure and set-backs are inevitable.
Building Resilience is aimed at giving participants a toolkit of inner skills to navigate their high pressure realities. They learn skills for maintaining an optimistic and healthy perspective through difficult times, methods for managing and sustaining energy for optimal performance, how to access and use mental imagery to enhance resilience and a strategy to remain engaged during challenges. These inner skills transform the stress and pressure inherent in moving forward into a growth experience.
