Workshop: Developing your Resilience

By Andy Whittle and Grace Clifford

Brussels: 27 April 2016

Resilience is a person’s capacity to respond to pressure and the demands of daily life. At work, as in life, resilient people are better able to deal with the demands placed upon them, especially where those demands might require them to be dealing with constantly changing priorities and a heavy workload.

Resilience is not a characteristic gifted to some individuals and not others.

Most people think that a combination of intelligence, long working hours and lots of experience allows people to thrive in potentially hostile working environments. In fact, it is those with resilience who cope best with challenges like constant organisational change and upheaval, impending staff cutbacks, looming deadlines, argumentative meetings and incessant competition from business rivals.

The good news is that although some people seem to be born with more resilience than others, those whose resilience is lower can learn how to boost their ability to cope, thrive and flourish when the going gets tough. (Centre for Confidence and Well-Being, 2006)

In this interactive and dynamic workshop, you will learn strategies for building up your natural resilience to the stresses and strains of modern life.

About Andy Whittle

Andy is a Life Clubs host, and also a facilitator, trainer, biker and hands on father. He has travelled extensively and lived abroad for more than 38 years. Nothing surprises him any more and so he welcomes challenges and changes with open arms. He co-hosts the Brussels Imagination Club where they hold experimental workshops and host Wellness retreats every autumn. He also helps run the PTPI-Hub Social Community, based in the Transforma Bxl building, helping others get more out of life. His speciality is Life-Hacking and Self-improvement in the form of workshops and groups.  How can he help you?

About Grace Clifford

Grace is a lifelong learner and is passionate about learning new ideas and techniques for improving her work-life balance. Being a mother of two adorable children, with all that that entails, she also has to organise herself and her office life and sometimes her husband too.

As more and more work is being done by fewer and fewer people, Grace is looking to help herself and others by building up resilience to the stresses and strains that life throws at you.
