Learn the habits that will let you thrive under pressure

Learn the habits that will let you thrive under pressure.

Would you like to be calmer in the face of adversity? Some people seem to remain on top of things when they go wrong, while others just don’t cope so well. Personal resilience means the ability to deal with challenge, change and high demand without being fazed or stopped in your tracks.

It may be in a particular situation where you’d like to respond differently, or that you’d like to cope better with more general stress and pressure. This course shows you the six qualities you need to develop in yourself to become more resilient and how to adjust your habits in ways which will boost your resilience. You'll learn about what makes highly resilient people resilient, and the five things you absolutely must avoid to protect yourself and stay on top of your game.

The keys to resilience

Resilience is built on a set of learnable skills. You surely have some of these already, and others you can develop, when you know how. The video lectures with supporting exercises will help you identify your strengths, increase, and enhance, a whole range of coping strategies.

Resilience stems from your personality, and how you think and act. With this course, you'll learn to take challenges in your stride, engage more productively and manage your stress from a completely different perspective.

Understand the steps to resilience and you can develop the ability to cope with pressure, problems and setbacks with less stress and more confidence. You may can't to avoid life's trials, but you can deal with them in a more resilient way, and even bounce back ready to take on the challenge.

Barry Winbolt MSc.

I'm a psychologist, therapist and trainer. I've built my career around sharing information which helps people sort out the things that trouble them. Hence my strapline "Life doesn't have to be like that".

I have been using mindfulness in my own life, and sharing the techniques with my clients, for 25 years.

My aim is to show how easy it is to improve performance and wellbeing and to sweep away the doubts and uncertainties that often prevent people from sorting out the things that trouble them.

My strapline "Life doesn't have to be like that" comes from the idea that – given the right information and a bit of encouragement – we can fix a lot of life's irritants ourselves.
