20th November – Building a Resilient Team Workshop

  • Time & Date:
  • Venue: GTA University Centre
  • Price: £275

This 1-day programme explores the relationship between resilience and sustainable team performance. We will explore the personal resilience of the leader as a role-model and how this directly influences team behaviours.
We are all tasked with doing more with less in business today – this session identifies the extent to which your team will follow you through change and the requirements of the business world today, in turn building their own resilience.


As a leader you are challenged to drive for consistent performance while finding ways to embrace new ways of thinking and behaving. By effectively understanding the challenges this involves and through managing your personal resilience and acting as a role model, you will influence your team’s culture and the extent to which your team members will follow you and deliver a sustainable performance. Resilient teams are stronger, more creative, positive, rise to challenge, bounce back from adversity, build good relationships and embrace change so adding to the bottom line. They are also comprised of happy and fulfilled people.
