Learn the neuroscience behind resilience, and develop practical strategies to help staff build strength and adaptability.

As we lead our teams and organisations into Covid recovery, the ability to nurture the personal and professional resilience of our staff is especially vital.

This webinar provides attendees with a grounding in the neuroscientific theory behind resilience, and a suite of practical strategies to assess their team’s resiliency and help staff build their strength and adaptability – delivered in an engaging, accessible manner, tailored to arts leaders and managers.

Carmel uses her framework of the Five Pillars of Resilience to deliver this webinar, and an inclusive approach to leadership. The impact of the past year on cultural sector staff has exacerbated the impact of poor mental health on the sector workforce. This webinar is an investment in your staff, as well as the resilience of your organisation.

At the end of this webinar you will:

  • be provided with a common lexicon with which to discuss resilience with your staff and teams
  • encouraged to develop individual awareness of stress signatures and triggers
  • be equipped with practical strategies you can use to build your team’s resilience
  • understand the importance of building a culture of learning, growth and flexibility
  • have a foundational understanding of key elements of neuroscience and post-traumatic growth which underpin resilience

Intended audience

  • People in management/leadership
  • People in emerging leadership roles
