Module 4 – Resilient Leadership: Developing Personal and Team Resilience

In this interactive The Language of Leadership: finding your own voice programme module we will be looking at how you can build the kind of resilience that enables you and your team to adapt and thrive.

We will be taking a closer look at the components of resilience, and ways of tapping into your EQ (Emotional Intelligence) so that you change perspective and pace, refresh your energy, and feel more confident.

Rather than simply ‘toughing it out’ or being triggered into knee jerk reactions, you will learn practical exercises to help build awareness so that support yourself and others in sustainable practice.
