On April 10, UBC Sauder will be hosting Dr. Marie-Hélène Pelletier to lead a workshop on how to reduce anxiety and burnout in the workplace.

How resilient are you? It’s a question worth asking. Your ability to be resilient, or bounce back, can have a significant influence on how you manage stress, how you interact with your colleagues and clients, your mental and physical health, and, ultimately, on your success. In an article by Forbes, it is stated that “the true grit of a leader is not how they perform during the good times but rather how they display emotional strength, courage and professionalism during the most trying times.”

The good news is that resilience can be built and improved. This session provides research-based tips to help you build and protect your resilience and support the resilience of others, whether at work or in your personal life. You may be surprised at how applying some basic principles of cognitive behavioural research can produce positive results in your life.

Key Takeaways:

  • Warning signs that your resilience is low and the potential implications for you, your team and the organization
  • Links between physical, mental and financial health
  • Practical, research-based tools to both build and retain your resilience.
