Resilience is the ability to respond to life’s challenges with confidence, flexibility, and equanimity, and also to grow and develop in new ways. During these current times of the COVID pandemic, we need resilience more than ever - for ourselves and for the people we lead. In this program we present specific skill development tools and frameworks to develop resilience by focusing on seven core competencies: Emotion Regulation, Impulse Control, Causal Analysis, Self-Efficacy, Realistic Optimism, Empathy, and Reaching Out. These competencies equip leaders to adapt flexibly through adversity, leading to growth and success. For upwardly mobile professionals navigating the shifting tide of change, these skills will enable participants to stand out in excellence against a backdrop of mediocrity.
This skill development course will help participants develop their overall leadership ability by outlining scientifically researched resilience skills, and practicing the application of these skills in both the work and personal context.
