Shona McFarlane from Golden Egg Training will run a session on:

‘How to Build Resilience’

In a world of increasing demands and diminishing resources, we are working longer hours, spending more time outside work connected to technology and taking less time to reflect, renew and prioritise. Most of us have put ourselves to the back of the queue of people in our life. In the PA Connect Network you are spending your time looking after everyone else. It is time to put your oxygen mask on.

Personal resilience is – “The capacity to maintain wellbeing and work performance under pressure and be able to bounce back from setbacks effectively (and be better than before)”.

Our natural resilience is a combination of learned skills and personal characteristics but whatever your starting point this can be enhanced in quality and quantity. Life in the world of work can be like a ‘white water rafting experience’ (S Covey). On the hamster wheel of delivering results, we rarely stop to consider what we want; where we should be; or how we should be investing our energy. Very often our working practices ignore our basic needs & serve to drain our energy.

This talk will focus on the four key areas that will help you increase your energy and build your personal resilience.

Sustaining our Physical Body

Securing our Emotions

Building Mental Toughness

Living a Life of Significance
