High Performance Resilience @ Work

Course Details

The challenges from work pressures and personal life can compromise health, safety and wellbeing. In addition during times of increasing competition and change being stressed, ‘tired and wired’, usually results in poor decision making and inadequate work performance.

Being personally enabled with resilience tools and techniques to meet those challenges effectively will improve health and wellbeing, but also determine the success or otherwise of outperforming the competition.

Developing individuals and teams that can be resilient is vital for the future of our industry.

This international award-winning training:

  • Uses the latest science and research to explain WHY being stressed, whether you feel it or not, will have a detrimental lasting effect not only on your health, wellbeing and safety, but also your performance.
  • Shares proven techniques and best practice so delegates can both learn and experience HOW to develop personal resilience, resulting in improvements to health, wellbeing and performance. It’s the antidote to being ‘tired and wired’.

  • Using biofeedback to understand how to measure, monitor and manage your heart rate variability (HRV), achieving a state of ‘coherence’. This has been shown, among other benefits, to increase your ability in potentially stressful times to self-regulate emotions and improve decision making.  
  • Understanding what the latest in sleep research is saying about why you may find it difficult to get off to sleep, and why you may wake up a couple of hours later. Also learning how you can improve the quality of your sleep. Good quality sleep is a vital energy resource.
  • Learning the critical factors you need to employ to ensure how you can change a habit that doesn’t serve you to a more beneficial one that does. How you perform, your health and wellbeing too, is often down to the habits you follow. 
  • Discovering the adverse health implications of having increased levels of cortisol (stress hormone) and how you can protect yourself both before stress occurs, and in the moment, by using a number of psychological and physiological resilience techniques.
  • Practising  various techniques that enhance your ability to think and focus clearly, feel grounded and in control when under pressure, so improving the ability to perform at one’s best. One of the techniques has also been shown to improve the  immune system.
