  • Resilience Training for Receptionists

    Resilience Training for Receptionists

    This workshop for reception staff will be an interactive and participative experience, aimed to refresh and inform on the ways you can build and strengthen your resilience. Resilience skills are much-needed in the workplace, where stress and uncertainty are a common experience. Some people are fortunate enough to be born resilient and can bounce back from experiences stronger than ever, but not everyone has this ability. The good news is that resilience skills can be developed. During the session you will;

     

    • Be given time to pause and find some space to be listened to as you acknowledge the intense pressure you are currently working under on a daily basis.
    • Share some ideas of how to stay resilient, or become more resilient both at work and at home.
    • Become to understand how we define success and whether success makes us truly happy.


    These sessions are led by experienced trainers who understand the specific challenges of working in practice.
