      Today’s workforce demands a lot from leaders: to be purpose-driven, authentic, inclusive, visionary yet humble; to create a space of psychological safety for their people and to show up without the armour of hierarchy. These demands can create a significant emotional load on leaders who are facing into a tide of consumer and shareholder activism, disruptive change to business practices and endless cost focus. Now is the time to understand that working on our personal resilience is not a sign of weakness, but of strength.

      Join this course to engage with other leaders in learning resilience habits that make a difference now and can serve you for a lifetime.

      Why now?

      • The pandemic has amplified existing resource pressure and accelerated change and uncertainty
      • The consequences of taking our health for granted, mentally, physically or emotionally are severe
      • Workplace stress has reached epidemic proportions in many regions across the globe
      • The cost of presenteeism is double the cost of absenteeism
      • Over a year of heightened pressure means many people are operating with lower personal capacity


      Increase your capacity to take on new challenges, reduce existing stress and prepare yourself for unexpected adversity.


      • Suitable for all leaders, everywhere
      • Resilience can be learned the easy way (taught) or the hard way (personal experience of adversity)
      • There are 7 categories of resilience, most people score very low on at least 2-3 categories
      • Having at least some resilience habits in every category means you have a tool for every situation

      • Tried-and-tested workshops, 3 to 4 hours tailored for Leaders and Executives
