The Resilient Leader


delivered by Shane Martin FOR

Primary & Post Primary Principals/Deputy Principals/School Leaders

Resilience is a key characteristic of high-performing leaders. We need to cultivate it within ourselves in order to advance and thrive. Resilient leaders help protect the energy of the people in their teams. They ‘bounce back’ from setbacks and misfortune and tap into their inner-strengths not only to cope but to rise above challenges.

Science has uncovered specific traits/factors that can be utilised at work and in our lives in general that will make us more resilient.  We can all learn to become more resilient.

This Seminar will explore the science of resilience and highlight evidence-based strategies linked to positive outcomes during challenging times.
