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

“Jono was an absolute delight! We loved his energy and the way he was able to connect and build rapport with our rangatahi. Our group may be a little bit different from normal classes as our makeup are of young rangatahi disengaged from school, work and referred by the courts. So, for Jono to be able to build rapport quickly with them and keep them engaged through the session was awesome! The kids walked away with learning, and this was tested the next day and they are thrilled with their new skills! We would love to continue to use him through our time as we will be booking every 4 weeks and if his schedule allows, he would be our first choice.”

Lili Kawaguchi at Trow Group Ltd

“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

“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.”

Janelle Pomana at Tegel Taranaki

“I am just emailing to say thank you for the training. The guys I have spoken to have said they enjoyed it – one of the best they had done! I believe Brad Smith was the one who ran at least one of the sessions and he was particularly mentioned. Many thanks to all involved – its great when the trainees enjoy their session – makes it easier to book them next time.”

Karen Cressy at QSE Manager, Base Civil Ltd

“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

“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

“The feedback has been extremely positive and goes so far to say it’s the best First Aid course they’ve ever attended. The course was very informative and detailed with staff coming away feeling very confident knowing what they need to do in any situation. They were also impressed with the training using the defib unit which is great as we have one onsite. So, I would like to pass on my thanks to everyone at Life Care Consultants and I look forward to booking more courses in the future.”

Norma Hartley at Flight Group Ltd

“The feedback from the staff plus one contractor was great. The content, pace and delivery of the info was great. The bonus was that the staff really enjoyed it and openly participated. For us getting a time to suit a larger group of staff can be challenging but with the trainer(Dawn) coming to our site makes the process a lot less complicated and easier to arrange.”
