Objective of Event:
The IRIS model of resilience believes that there are two core factors that help us better understand ourselves and develop a resilient mindset™:
How accurately we interpret the world around us (thinking styles); and
How well we can adapt our own behaviour in different situations (behavioural flexibility)
Resilience Fundamentals is a personal skills development program designed to promote one’s own resilience – the ability to remain focused, on-task and in problem solving mode – in the face of workplace adversities like change, ambiguity and uncertainty.
Through a process of retrospective learning participants will…
Become aware of negative thinking and self-limiting responses;
Build the mental strength to navigate their way through life’s crises;
Learn to cope with grief and anxiety;
Overcome barriers that get in the way of building solid relationships;
Master the art of realistic optimism; and
Identify with the strengths of authentic happiness.
The program is internationally respected and the only course of its type in Australasia. On the day, you will gain from the insights of the only work scientifically proven to boost the resilience of individuals in the workforce. IRIS RESILIENCE FUNDAMENTALS workshop is inspired by some of the great authors in this (and related) fields including such notable theorists as Albert Ellis, Tim Beck, Suniya Luthar, Richard Tedeschi, Lillian Comos-Diaz, Anthony Kidman and Karen Saakvitine. However, our program is most influenced by our readings into the works of Martin Seligman, Karen Reivich and Andrew Shatté (some mentors our team had the pleasure of tutoring under at the University of Pennsylvania some years back)…
