I was given the great fortune to deliver Resilience training throughout Adullam Homes and I have the pleasure to say the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. I would personally like to thank everyone who attended and committed to the resilience pledge. You opened your hearts and minds to adopting new ways of thinking both personally and professionally.
So what was the purpose of the training?
To continue to embed a culture of reliance and wellbeing throughout the organisation, amplifying that personal resilience is the capacity to maintain wellbeing and work performance under pressure, including being able to bounce-back from setbacks effectively. Our natural resilience is a combination of personal characteristics and learned skills – and its quality can always be developed, whatever an individual’s starting point. In times of change and growth, the skill of being resilient is becoming increasingly important for individual and professional performance. As I discussed in the training, working in the support sector can have, at times, a high emotional cost.
The training covered a wide range of topics such as wellbeing, personality traits, and stress management, identify skills and qualities and behaviour management amongst many others.
What will future Resilience Training provide?
A more flexible, creative and positive approach to change
Various elements of the course create an awareness of approaches to change and how, by building resilience, changes can be more positive. The learner will gain an ability to transform any situation into an opportunity.
Increased performance via efficient management of workload and other commitments
The course will teach you the importance of knowing and implementing their own boundaries, as well as respecting other people’s, together with an understanding of the importance of developing various resilience skills.
Enhanced realistic optimism and can-do attitude
By learning what realistic optimism is and spending time considering the thinking traps you can fall into, people who attended the training will see the importance of developing this mind-set and the knock-on effect it will have in improving their problem solving and creativity skills.
Become more level-headed and calm under pressure
It teaches learners to become more aware and will develop their ability to identify feelings and, where necessary, control them. This, together with an understanding of the benefits that mindfulness can bring to building your resilience, will help with the ability to perform when under pressure without resulting in a personal toll to your wellbeing.
All trainees are given a work book to use as a resilience toolkit, this will aid for future development of resilience. Click here to find out more about our Resilience Course.
