NAWO has a new offering in its suite of Professional Development Programs for 2016 – ‘Practical Resilience’.
But just what is resilience?
According to the Encarta Online Dictionary, resilience is:
and my personal favourite:
Whether at home or at work, I think we all know that feeling!
Quite simply, resilience is the ability, and willingness, to get on with being who you are and doing what you do best.
So how can resilience as a core skill be developed? By developing the ability to recognise your behaviours that enhance, or undermine, your capacity to be resilient and be your best.
NAWO has hosted a number of 2 hour introductory sessions on Resilience, presented by the Resilience Institute, with overwhelmingly positive feedback. Louise Weine, National Director of NAWO said, “when I attended this session in VIC last year I had an ‘aha’ moment with regard to my coping strategies (what works and what doesn’t), and it gave me greater insight into recognising my movement down the spiral so that I can now engage those strategies more quickly and effectively to get me back up the spiral again”. And of the Facilitator, she said: “I cannot speak highly enough of Peta Sigley and the program she facilitates”.
The feedback also indicated that participants wanted more time to fully engage and process the key learnings. To this end, NAWO negotiated with the Resilience Institute to offer the one day Practical Resilience interactive learning workshop, introducing participants to the fundamentals of resilience. Workshops will be held in NSW, Queensland and Victoria in July.
The Workshop explores four key areas:
