Bouncing back: Building resilience in you and your team
When and where?
Wednesday 26th May 4:00pm-5:30pm – Online via Zoom (invitation only)
Richard’s ‘iCan’ Keynote presentation could not be better timed given the current COVID-19 crisis. If there was ever a time when people needed to understand and cultivate their own resilience, then that time would be now. To lead your team to be more resilient you first need to demonstrate resilience in yourself. Although we know that many of our members have already shown brilliant resilience during these troubling times, there is certainly no harm in developing this further.
Richard’s life embodies the spirit of resilience. By drawing on his own experience of adversity, he is able to engage with others and show how he changed his own thinking to process, and bounce back from, one setback after another. He combines this hands-on, authentic approach with the latest scientific research and invites others to reflect on how they can think differently about their own challenges. His workshops are highly engaging and interactive, and participants get to learn and try several practical and effective techniques for reframing negative experiences and improving their resilience.
What you will take away:
- Discover that you are already more resilient than you might think
- Explore ways to bring out the best in your teams
- Learn how important transparency is during challenging times
- Create a culture where it’s OK to make mistakes
- Learn a number of simple strategies that will help you and your teams to be even more resilient
Richard certainly knows a thing or two about resilience. Brought up on the ‘At Risk’ register, at children’s homes, with foster families and then his often violent and alcoholic father, took away any self-esteem that he had. He lost his mother in tragic circumstances and then left school with no qualifications. After a number of dead-end jobs, he turned to drugs and was sent to prison where he reached rock-bottom before finally deciding to find the gut-wrenching determination to turn his life around. He wrote a book about his journey which was a Times No1 Bestseller selling almost 1/2 million copies and has now been translated into 11 languages. He’s inspired audiences across the globe as far and wide as Iran, Malaysia, Italy, Germany, Canada and many more.
