Strengthening Personal Resilience Programme


Maze Recruitment Group, finding you the right path

The Strengthening Personal Resilience Programme is delivered by our in-house Business Psychologist who is also a Master Trainer licensed to deliver Professor Derek Mowbray’s world-renowned programmes.

The programme places personal resilience in the context of the workplace and explores the influences, techniques and approaches that help individuals develop and sustain personal control and resilience at work.

Its emphasis is on the prevention of stress with individuals taking responsibility themselves to approach challenging situations with robust attitudes to remain resilient and grow their resilience further. This is achieved by identifying individual areas where staff are vulnerable to losing personal control under highly pressured, challenging situations. We work with staff on strengthening these areas through discussion, theories and models of resilience and an extensive variety of activities and exercises.

The programme covers the following topics:

  • What does resilience mean?
  • The process of being resilient.
  • What is my current level of resilience – an assessment questionnaire.
  • Why do I need to be resilient?
  • How to strengthen personal resilience by strengthening personal control over oneself, over responses to events and over responses to people.
  • Actions required to take this forward personally and professionally.

The learning outcomes from the programme are to:

  • Understand why personal resilience is important.
  • Understand the central characteristics of a resilient person.
  • Discover the degree of resilience that is already established in the individual.
  • Identify the threats and events of routine and exceptional daily working lives for which resilience is needed.
  • Understand how to strengthen personal resilience.
  • Understand how to embed the techniques and exercises into routine daily working lives.

The training is not only designed to reduce absenteeism and staff turnover by addressing stress, strain, tension and current levels of resilience, it is also designed to reduce presenteeism; presenteeism is when employees are present in body but not in mind due to mental conditions such as anxiety and stress, which prevents them from being fully productive at work. Presenteeism is a growing concern in the workplace and is costing employers 1.5 times more than absenteeism and staff turnover combined.
