Why do we expect ourselves, and others, to race from deadline to deadline thinking that we are thriving, when in reality we are hardly surviving? The constant juggle – at work and at home – information overload, deadlines, competitive pressures, change. It can lead to confusion, disengagement, distress and depression.

According to the Harvard Business Review, more than education, more than experience and more than training, it is resilience that makes the difference between success and failure. Why? Because resilient people can constantly reinvent themselves and bring their whole selves to work.

With resilience you can remain calm and optimistic. You can stop being at the mercy of your environment. Rather than shrinking from adversity, you will be able to embrace the challenge and find opportunity.

‘Developing and Sustaining High Performance‘ is a NAWO Endorsed Professional Development Programs. Presented by the Resilience Institute, it is an evidence-based, integral method for professional and personal performance and fulfilment that will equip you with the knowledge, skills and inspiration to achieve sustainable high performance with health and happiness.

Developing and Sustaining High Performance – what you will learn

Developing and Sustaining High Performance is an interactive learning workshop that introduces participants to the fundamentals of resilience and explores four key areas:

Stress Mastery
Maintaining calm, alertness and engagement.

Physical Vitality
Building energy, strength and endurance.

Performance Mindset
Aligning your mind and emotions for performance.

Spirit in Action
Authentic happiness and integral daily practice.

This hands-on, one day workshop is about moving beyond coping to thriving. You will leave this program motivated and engaged, with practical changes to make immediately.

Most people think of resilience as being tenacity: the ability to get back to level zero. We think it’s more than that. We define resilience as one’s learned ability to have:

Enthused by challenge and change

Develop talents and opportunity

Respect and care for others and nature

Toughness and recovery skills in adversity

You will learn about resilience assets and associated disciplines, and emerge energised and with practical tools to begin using immediately.
