Resilience is a powerful skill and capability that can be developed. It is the ability to bounce back from obstacles and setbacks to achieve higher levels of performance. It requires developing positive adaptation processes to help overcome the challenges that we face and the use of positive experiences to build confidence in our strengths and abilities. It promotes self-efficacy, confidence and possibility thinking. This session focuses on how we can develop strategies to build our psychological capital and resilience in order to improve the experiences that we have to reach our full potential.
