Leading the Resilient Team Workshop

The Challenges

“How can we adapt quickly and effectively to unforeseen events?”

“What can be done to increase the team’s energy and motivation and get back to full strength quickly?”

“How can I communicate with and support the individuals in the team who are struggling?


Overview
 

Resilient teams respond quickly, decisively and effectively to unforeseen, unpredictable events. 

A major event or series of events occurring one after the other will test the agility and determination of team leaders and members alike.  Research studies have highlighted that, when individual and team resilience are high, organisational resilience is enhanced.  Not only do they survive but these organisations often grow and prosper through difficult times.

Moderate to high levels of individual and team resilience are therefore critical to an organisation’s success and sustainability.  People Results offers the insights, skills and strategies for personal and team resilience in Leading the Resilient Team Half-Day Workshop.
