Aim of the event

Resilience is emerging as the seminal skill for leaders. The one constant in our working lives is change. Our operating environment is continually changing and we are having to adapt and respond to new situations on a daily basis. We need to support our teams and workforce and help them to adapt to a sometimes difficult working environment and an uncertain future. How do you remain calm and cope under pressure – whether it is an organisational crisis or when staff are on the verge of a melt-down due to pressure of work and deadlines! This masterclass will hear from speakers who have direct experience of operating in a high pressured environment and how by implementing strategies, you can look after yourself and your team!

Personal Resilience: What every leader needs to know 
Resilience is "the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties- otherwise known as 'bounce back". Just imagine how it could be if you as a leader, your managers and staff developed a different capability to handle problems and change. This is possible using 'Energy Intelligence'. Claire Chidley, author of "Energy Intelligence at Work- a New Leadership Theory" shows us how we can stay balanced and on focus to repel the slings and arrows of outrageous bounce forward into a positive future not bounce back!

Claire's talk will look at the Energy Intelligent qualities leaders and managers need as well as some useful techniques to stay healthy and energised.
