AD:VENTURE: Enhancing Resilience in Business

Resilience is defined as the ability to bounce back from adversity, frustration, and misfortune and is essential for the effective leader. This workshop will teach you practical and proven psychology tools that will improve your own resilience in difficult situations so that you can remain in good mental health. The aim of this session is to help you recognise when you might need support and to develop self-confidence and motivation. This workshop will identify ways in which you can enhance your own resilience within the business context.


Through a series of workshop activities, we will explore over the 2 sessions:

• What is resilience?
• Why is it important for business success?
• Understanding the impact of uncertainty
• Strategies to manage stress and build resilience
• Reflecting forward

Tailored materials will be provided for you to work on between sessions to encourage reflective practice and facilitate meaningful discussions

The session will be facilitated by:

Dr Danielle McDermott is a Senior Lecturer in Forensic Psychology. She has experience working within the Criminal Justice System and has delivered training in emotional management and reflective practice to Prison Officers working with challenging clients.

Dr Lisa Webster is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology and her research focuses on resilience and wellbeing in adolescents. She has delivered staff training on resilience and wellbeing.
