Five Dimensions of Resilience
Based on neuroscience, psychology and performance science in sport, this session defines resilience and offers practical tools with which to build it both in leaders and their teams.
- With the increasing emphasis on wellbeing and mental health at work, resilience and the need to build it has never been more important
- Leaders in particular need to “put on the oxygen mask first” if they are to sustain high levels of empathy, cognitive performance and effective decision-‐making
- Elite athletes recognise that performance at the highest level requires resilience, something they receive professional help with. This help is directly transferable to business
CEOs and Business Leaders will leave the session with:
- An understanding of the five dimensions of resilience and their scientific basis: Bouncing Back; Bouncing Forward; Grit; Self-‐Control; Cognitive Performance.
- Why these five dimensions are important for leaders.
- How to recognise the signs of low resilience in teams.
- Practical tools for building each of the five dimension in leaders and teams.
