On the 10th April at 2pm in Room 2, Abercorn Conference Centre, West College Scotland, Jessica Smyrl of YSM Solutions spoke on Building Personal Resilience.
Why do some people appear to adapt to stressful situations better than others? Why do some recover from adverse experiences when others don’t, and cope with high work demands more successfully? And why do some seem to deal better with change?
This is the topic of resilience. Learning to adapt by looking after your own resilience will put you in a position to help others.
In this meeting you will gain an understanding of what resilience is and the impact of pressure, stress and performance. Consider risks and overview of building personal resilience and performance as well as tools and techniques to help you become more resilient and enable you to deal with challenges and setbacks.
