What does it mean to be resilient?
In these uncertain times, it can be a real challenge to maintain our focus, manage our stress, and try to balance the emotional, physical and mental demands being put on us.
This workshop will help you to unpack how certain feelings can affect how you develop resilience. We will give you a practical framework with personal strategies to enhance your emotional resilience and teach you to become more effective in recognising, managing and expressing your emotions. You will also get support for dealing with pressure and take away our top tips for improving your overall resilience
