HOW CAN YOU BUILD RESILIENCE?
Understand your brain, your habits, and the belief systems that can both support and sabotage your resilience.
Learn to cultivate positive emotions, make stress work for you, and engage in activities that proactively build resilience.
Step out of reactivity to focus on what is most important, resetting your nervous system, priorities and perspective.
Anxiety, stress, and burnout are at an all-time high, and if we don’t take time to reset, the physical and psychological results can be catastrophic. More than training, education, or experience, your resilience determines your success, personally and professionally.
Fortunately, resilience is a set of skills and habits that can be learned and cultivated. Learn how to take back control, make stress work for you, and cultivate a resilient mindset, skill set, and the ability to reset.
By the end of the session, employees will be able to:
- Practice brain-based strategies to offset your negativity bias.
- Shift the way your brain interprets and responds to stress.
- Develop a toolbox full of resilience-building skills.
- Utilize mindfulness to reset your nervous system.
- Build emotional reserves to prevent and combat burnout.
