Coping in a Crisis: Building Your Resilience (ONLINE)

This course will give you fresh and realistic methods to bolster your ability to cope with change and maintain your perspective.


(Welcome to our Virtual Classroom! These are not webinars. These are live, interactive ‘classroom' based sessions led by one of our experienced Hub trainers. You'll take part in group work in our break out rooms, ask questions, receive personalised feedback and contribute to the group discussion in the same way you would if you were attending an open course. With whiteboarding, ‘raise your hand', plenary rooms and screen sharing, our aim is to as closely as possible replicate the experience of attending one of our open training courses.) 

The pace and scope of change over the past few weeks has tested us all to the limit.  Even the most resilient and robust people will be dealing with additional pressures and worries.  This course will give you fresh and realistic methods to bolster your ability to cope with change and maintain your perspective.

Resilience is the ability to cope well with pressure, to keep going even when things get tough.

With the right tools, techniques and mindset you can learn to thrive under pressure.  This 3 ½ hour online course will help you stay calm and focused even when things around you are changing rapidly.  It will equip you with proven methods to perform well under pressure, and to take care of yourself so you don't get stressed or burnt out.
