resilience training

Overview

Whenever an organizational change occurs, productivity often drops.  It tends to stay at a lower level until the "dust settles" from the change and people become accustomed to the new state.   That drop in productivity has a cost.  Multiply that by the increasing number of changes in today's workplace and you have a significant "hidden" cost inside an enterprise.

Resilience is the ability of an employee to "bounce back" from a change.  Increasing the resilience of your workforce reduces the amount of productivity "down time" in a change.  

This workshop provides your employees with specific skills to increase their resilience.  Participants leave with an understanding of and practice in the five attributes of resilience along with an action plan to build their personal resilience.
