When the going gets tough, the tough get going! But how do they do they keep going? This workshop on building and developing resilience, will give you tools and ideas to help you bounce back from inevitable setbacks and maintain the momentum to reach your goals.

Resilience is certainly important if you’re going to be successful in the long term but it is not something you either have or don’t have - how resilient you are is more about habits of thinking than predetermination. The good news is that resilience is a skill and can be learnt.
