SESSION A: The Science of Bouncibility– How to Build Resilience within Ourselves
Resilience is the ability to adapt to the challenges of life and work. If you are strong in resilience you can harness your inner strengths and coping mechanisms during such periods of upheaval and change in your life. In recent decades scientists have investigated the concept and can recommend strategies linked to better outcomes during these periods within our work environments and personal lives.
Becoming more resilient will not mean that problems disappear. It does not mean that you become ‘as hard as nails’. Resilience is more about learning how to cope – tapping into our own resources and fostering more strengths in order to not only survive but thrive through adversity. This seminar will outline ten scientifically validated strategies linked to better outcomes during periods of challenge. The material is extremely relevant to everyone and can be applied to our work and personal lives.
“More than education, more than experience, more than training, a person’s level of resilience will determine who succeeds and who fails. That’s true in the cancer ward, it’s true in the Olympics, and its true in the boardroom.”
Dean Becker, Harvard Business Review
SESSION B: HEALTH AND HAPPINESS: How to refresh your life
Over many decades science has made a wonderful contribution in helping us understand negative emotion. The emphasis on deficits, disorders and disease has allowed for effective interventions to be developed in order to help and support people who are unwell or unhappy.
But why wait until we are unwell to learn about becoming healthier? Why wait until we are unhappy to explore happiness?
In recent years psychologists have started to examine positive emotion. This research has focused on what makes people happier, what gives them more meaning and purpose in life, and what measures they can take to lead to overall greater health.
The seminar will outline ten simple, practical, and most importantly, evidence-based strategies linked to a better quality of life. The hope is that it will uplift and inspire change in the lives of those who attend but even more importantly inspire participants to incorporate it into their homes, workplaces and communities.
“Well-being cannot exist just in your head. Well-being is a combination of feeling good as well as actually having meaning, good relationships and accomplishments in your life.” Martin Seligman
