This course has been designed to be delivered as a short but impactful learning experience across two webinar sessions providing Energy Industry professionals with the tools, skills and mindset to strengthen resilience, become more adaptable and remain confident whilst working in their remote workspace.

We will provide participants with powerful mental tools and techniques so they can maintain their wellbeing, become more resilient and remain productive. The tools help participants to re-energise themselves and enable them to respond positively to setbacks and change. Participants will gain clarity on their personal and work goals which creates energy and action. Participants will learn to create new mental thinking habits that will drive self-motivation within a remote setting.

For most people this has been a period of massive change, uncertainty and upheaval in all aspects of our lives. Never before have we been required to be as resilient, adaptable and confident in order to thrive.

Duration and Training Method

A virtual course divided into 2 three-hour sessions (equivalent to a one-day classroom course), which combines presentations, group discussion and practical exercises.

Participants will learn to:

  1. Have a measure of their current levels of resilience and understand the 7 pillars that make up resilience

  3. Have awareness of their inner voice and use this as an agent for positive change.
  4. Respond effectively to new tasks that are a stretch
  5. Have clear, energising goals that form personal purpose
  6. Master thinking and emotional control and become experts at mental rehearsal
  7. Develop a set of success habits that ensure wellbeing is maintained
