Dealing with Change and Building Resilience Online Programme Overview
Transforming our approach to Change and building our Capacity to Thrive
Why this is Important
Our lives are becoming busier and more complex. At work, we are not only experiencing fast-paced change, but we are exposed to increasing amounts of information on a daily basis. Bring in a global pandemic and you can add uncertainty, blurred work/life boundaries and growing frustration into the mix. These life pressures are resulting in increased exposure to physical and emotional stress and are making it more difficult for us to find a healthy work-life balance.
Advances in brain imaging technology are providing new insights into how our brains work and these confirm that negative stress impacts our ability to think effectively, make decisions, come up with new ideas, maintain good relationships, and cope well under pressure.
Dealing with Change and Building Resilience explores how we can change our attitude to change through a deeper understanding of how we respond or react to change and by building strategies that reduce our stress responses and help develop greater change readiness and agility.
This online learning programme consists of 6 self-paced learning modules followed by optional face to face or webinar-based workshops. There are videos to watch, activities to complete, quizzes to try and each Module builds on the previous one. The Programme provides practical strategies, techniques and tools to implement.
- Understand the nature of change from the perspective of evolution and neuroscience
- Uncover what we can predict about change and how to turn emotional reactions into measured responses
- Explore the nature of stress, our individual stress triggers and what to do to reduce and minimise stress
- Discover the 3 elements of self-care that boost our ability to deal with the uncertain
- Master simple yet highly effective strategies and tools that build our resilience muscle
- Identify the strategies used by the world’s most resilient people and learn how to develop the capacity to bounce back from adversity
- Come away with a great sense of control, calm and clarity
What our Clients say about this Programme
“Congratulations to BrainSmart for their ‘Dealing with Change and Building Resilience’ programme. This 6 module, online course delivers a background into what happens with change, the challenges faced in situations of change and approaches to build resilience in the workplace or at home.
This practical, down to earth program is constructive, thought-provoking and delivers approaches that participants can utilise in times of change or uncertainty. The videos and activities are useful with lots of information so participants can apply the details to real-life situations. The approaches can be revisited again and again especially at times of high stress involving emotion.
The corporate workplace is a place of high change. This sort of training is so valuable for all organisational levels as the BrainSmart approach delivers quality, professional, scientific approaches, based on human neuroscience, that will help any individual think about their approach to challenging situations and be able to handle situations with building resilience to move forward. Really enjoyed the online training and do refer back to the video at times of difficult situations. Highly recommended”. Adrienne McLean – The Speaker’s Practice
“Please thank whoever arranged this course for us. Today I felt happy coming to work as I no longer feel helpless as I have new strategies to explore in terms of why I feel what I feel in situations and how I can communicate to get my needs met. It has been another defining moment in my life.” Programme Participant – Unitywater
“The insight on how the brain works has helped me plan my day and week better to avoid ‘going limbic’! I now plan tasks which require new thinking or concentration for limited periods throughout each day and break them up with routine tasks” Programme Participant – Cuscal
