Course details


The aim of this course is to enhance your personal resilience and understand how energy management impacts your effectiveness at home and work.

Recent research shows that:

  • 64% of the population sleep less than 7-8 hours a night
  • 73% find it difficult to focus on one thing at a time
  • 64% say their decisions at work are influenced by external demands rather than a clear and strong sense of purpose
  • 64% say that they feel irritable, impatient or anxious at work
  • 61% spend too little time doing what they do best and enjoy the most
  • 80% say they spend too much time reacting to immediate demands rather than being strategic and focussing on the longer term

Personal resilience is:

“The capacity to maintain wellbeing and work performance under pressure and be able to bounce back from setbacks effectively (and be better than before).”

Our natural resilience is a combination of learned skills and personal characteristics, but whatever your starting point, this can be enhanced in quality and quantity. Life in the world of work can be like a ‘white water rafting experience’ (S Covey). It doesn’t have to be this way. There are four keys to managing our stress and energy so we are more resilient:

  • Sustaining our Physical Body
  • Securing our Emotions
  • Expressing our Mind
  • Living a life of Significance

On the hamster wheel of delivering results, we rarely stop to consider what we want, where we should be or how we should be investing our energy. Very often our working practices ignore our basic needs and serve to drain our energy.

Who is it for

This course is designed for everyone who is under pressure at work and needs to manage multiple demands. It is perfect for managers and teams in the business world.


By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Be the best version of you – understanding how to be the ‘Optimum Me’
  • Chose to move from surviving to thriving
  • Define your own ‘True North’
  • Recharge your ‘Battery’ to become master of your physical energy
  • Apply techniques to weather the emotional storms of life
  • Harness your inner mental strength and resilience
