Rethinking Resilience
Workshop | YCN Library — For our members and programme participants

In this session we'll explore ways of bouncing back from challenges, managing stress and using our energy effectively.

We all face challenging times at work, as in most areas of our lives. We might be great at planning and mitigating risks, but there will always be situations, people and external circumstances that knock us off course, stress us out or shake our confidence — many of them out of our control. But what is fully in our control, is how we respond to these events. Through awareness and practice we can train ourselves to think and react differently, changing the way we perceive challenges, and using these experiences to become stronger. 

Being resilient doesn’t mean challenges disappear, but it does mean that we cope better, learn from past experiences and build an internal stability to thrive in times of difficulty. Over an energising two hours we'll explore different approaches for growing resilience, and share some tools and techniques to immediately put into practice.

What we'll cover: 
- What is resilience is for us personally? 
- The stress response and how it affects the body and mind
- Tips for regulating our nervous system to be calmer and more present in the face of challenges  
- Busy vs Effective: techniques to get the most out of your brain and energy 
- How lifestyle choices support or reduce resilience

How the session will be structured: 
We'll explore some theory, and share opinions on how this can be applied in our own unique contexts through critical discussion. The session will include a mix of learning techniques and participating in practical exercises, including some breathing and meditation. 

Who is the session for: 
Anyone who wants support in changing the way they perceive and react to workplace stressors, and growing their personal toolkit for learning to thrive in changing circumstances.
