Mental Health

Building Resilience

It might be easy to be positive when everything is going well, but our ability to get back up on our feet and keep moving forward when challenges come can be more difficult. Why is it, that some people are better at this than others? The answer can be found in an individual’s levels of resilience.

Resilience is the ability to respond positively to adversity, to bounce back and find a way forward. The good news is, this is a skill we can grow and develop. This half-day workshop is designed to teach just that – to increase the personal levels of resilience in your staff.

Testimonials

“As you are aware I have been a qualified first aider since 1962 and have at various times completed training with all known training suppliers. I was very impressed when I attended the refresher course in Wellington as part of my evaluation of the training you had on offer. When you arranged to run a course for Council in-house, I was blown away. Staff members were absent from their workplace for half the time span of any other training consultants, they all raved about the quality of the course, the content of the course and the presentation which was first class. Please pass my thanks to all your staff who had anything to do with this presentation. They all deserve a pat on the back.”

Lindsay Skinner at Porirua District Council

“The facilitator that we use for our training is fantastic. She has such a passion for her topic and her energy is contagious”

Kerryn Gregory at Auckland Meat Processing

“I just wanted to send an email regarding one of the New Plymouth Life Care workers – Jenny Coombe. As mentioned during our call yesterday, Jenny has been outstanding to work with over the past few years. Jenny has a wonderful attitude, and many staff look forward to seeing Jenny whenever she comes on site to complete health assessments or courses. Our work relationship with Jenny is a breeze along with her valuable knowledge and experience. We value her work ethic and willingness to make anything we throw her way work in our favour. We really believe Jenny is such an asset to the Life Care team.”

“Yolandi, our tutor today was bloody awesome. A wealth of knowledge and damn easy to get along with, better than every St John/Red Cross course I have attended. Keep up the good work”

Paul Clarke at Security Technician

“I really enjoyed your presentation today at the Gisborne District Council. It was very informative and your engagement with the audience was fantastic. Mental illness is something a lot of people in New Zealand have some form of personal experience with. Thank you for taking the time to spread awareness.”

Bevan Blunden at Gisborne District Council

“Just passing on the Project’s thanks for having Bryan as our trainer. When he was here a fortnight ago one of the attendees was Tony Adams, our Project Manager. I didn’t tell Bryan this until after the course finished. Tony was very impressed and said it was one of the best trainers he had ever had – kept things moving, was engaging and kept the topics interesting. Today’s course has included our Finance Manager and one of the senior staff from Goodman’s. Both of those have stopped by my desk and said how much they have enjoyed having Bryan. Please pass on our thanks to both him and the Life Care team.”

Maree Keelty at HEB Construction

“In summary from the evaluation forms the staff filled out the evaluation ratings were 8 Excellent and 1 Very Good which gives you a good indication of how much they enjoyed the course. Summary of comments: Enjoyed course interaction with all present – great presenter; Clear, concise, easy to understand and remember; Most enjoyable and informative presentation; The information in the course was very relevant; The service has been just fine and everything has run very smoothly from my perspective. It is great from my end to know that once it is booked it practically runs itself so keep up the good work”
