Resilience Planning Programme

Our approach to learning and development at Stress Management Plus, both for individuals and for businesses, is to ensure as far as is possible that what we deliver involves ongoing - and not just 'one-off - development and support, hence the combination in this instance of:

This has the benefit of providing an ongoing level of support and development, embedding the learning, and also providing motivation and encouragement to achieve goals, manage change and improve performance.

The purpose of the programme is to enable staff to

  • Manage Pressure
  • Prevent Stress
  • Learn the Skills, Attitudes, Behaviours and techniques - here's a taster relating to 'Confidence' - necessary to Maintain and Develop Resilience

Delegates begin the planning process during the classroom session by putting together their Personal Resilience Plan: what they are going to do at work/at home to achieve their personal/professional goals.

The training and coaching we provide centres around

  • HOW RESOURCEFUL YOU ARE, HOW YOU CAN AND MUST TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR WELLBEING AND HOW YOU CAN ACHIEVE AND PERFORM AND MAKE THE BEST OF YOURSELF/YOUR SITUATION
  • HOW ARE YOU – NOT YOUR MANAGER, THE ORGANISATION, SOMEONE ELSE – GOING TO GO ABOUT ACHIEVING THE FOREGOING?

This is an empowering and positive process in which delegates are encouraged and motivated to acknowledge that we can and must take responsibility for how we think, feel and behave. We can as a result focus on our personal sphere of influence and what we can control, and move forward and make plans on this basis.

Examples of the Attitudes, Activities and Behaviours delegates typically choose to work towards: Be more assertive at work/home; Be more positive, confident, optimistic; Develop meaning and purpose at work/home; Believe in myself more; Exercise; Have realistic expectations; Set personal/professional goals; Nurture relationships; Be more sociable; Focus on the present and future (not the past)

These are just some examples. What links these actions is that they are all likely to contribute to improvements in performance, to benefit the individual and by extension the organisation.  

To recap, the coaching element of the programme – typically involving a combination of listening, questioning, feedback and goal-setting - provides support, encouragement and motivation, and crucially ongoing learning and development for participants.
