This is a simple, back-to-basics programme that is built upon presenting research and then encouraging discussion to grow shared understanding, critical thinking and accountability amongst participants. It is based on the very latest research about adult learning, and includes evidence-based research, critical analysis, discussion, goal setting, take-away tasks to complete between workshops, and reflection. 

Designed by Kathryn Jackson, the programme consists of a series of six workshops of between one and two hours, delivered weekly or monthly. The programme can be delivered either live online or in person (or a combination).

Kathryn is a highly experienced learning professional, with a reputation for her work in resilience and wellbeing, and expertise as a leadership coach. Her work includes facilitation of coaching skills and resilience workshops, individual coaching of leaders at all levels, and the publication of the following internationally acclaimed books:

Kathryn has drawn on her expertise and the research to design this wellbeing programme for organisations so that you can develop confidence in your ability to understand and talk about resilience at work.

For the best results in your organisation, this programme should be championed by senior leaders. By endorsing the programme, sharing stories that describe why the programme is important for your organisation, and encouraging attendance at the workshops, there is likely to be higher engagement and application of learning.

The programme will not ‘fix’ your workplace culture and get rid of stressors, but it has been designed to equip your people with the tools and resources to grow self-managed resilience to operate better within it.
