Thrive - Resilience Strategies

So many people today are struggling with the increasing pace of change and the constant and excessive busyness that comes with it. Many feel stretched, overwhelmed and exhausted, besieged by the demands of complex projects and workplaces. This is not only ineffective and unsustainable, but ultimately ends in stress, anxiety and burnout. Prolonged stress impacts our physical and mental health. It also leads to decreased productivity and low engagement and absenteeism.

Thrive – Resilience Strategies, will introduce participants to an evidence based model of resilience. The model combines knowledge in the associated disciplines of leadership, organisational culture, psychotherapy, psychiatry, neuroscience and coaching.
