How do you take charge of crises in a resilient way?

Resilience is the ability to recover from difficulties and bounce back from setbacks. It is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress. It means learning to cope despite – or in spite of – difficult experiences, and how to manage the ongoing demands of life. Resilient people are aware of situations, their own thinking, emotional reactions, the behaviour of themselves and those around them.

In this 2-day webinar held on 22 Apr 2020 (Wed) and 25 Apr 2020 (Sat), we will discuss the ways we can overcome stressors and take charge of situations in the midst of personal challenges and the global health crisis.

Research has found that our resilience is shaken not by an adverse event itself, but by how we perceive the event. Our past experiences, and childhood and cultural programming, have developed the habitual thinking patterns that help us make sense of the world. However, these perspectives sometimes hinder our ability to ‘bounce back’ from adversity.

By identifying our daily triggers, thinking traps and beliefs, we can adopt a more objective view of an event and remain in the ‘growth mindset’. Growth mindset is essential for embracing and driving change. Equally, by developing skills that enhance emotional regulation, calming and focusing, individuals will become more resistant to stress.

Hear our diverse range of speakers weigh in their thoughts on the different facets of resilience!

Building Collective Resilience by Jana Dawson

22 Apr 2020 (Wed) || 7pm-8pm

After developing resilience within individuals, what can we do to build resilience in teams and organisations? Collective resilience refers to the capacity for a group or community to overcome challenges, primarily by being highly adaptable. People who belong to a group that they perceive to have high levels of resilience are more likely to experience flourishing.

• Learn how to harness strengths to build individual and collective resilience.

• Learn how to optimise trust through positive communication.

Leadership Resilience by Dr. Jeremy Gwee

22 Apr 2020 (Wed) || 7pm-8pm

There is no leader without followers. Followers follow a leader because the leader may give a sense of hope, a sense of purpose or a sense of security and so forth. People follow a leader for a reason. As such, anyone can be a leader as long as there are people who believes in him or her. The burden of leadership is not to let down those who believe in you!

• Learn how to inspire hope for others.

• Learn how to unpack resilience for others.

• Learn how to cultivate feelings of safety for others as a leader.
