What Are the Benefits of Learning How to Build Resilience?
Resilience (less commonly also called resiliency) is the ability to endure adversities, recover from them, and grow stronger as a result. There are many benefits of resilience, both on a personal and on a professional level.
Personal resilience for an individual is important as it improves their wellbeing and mental health by:
- Supporting self-confidence
- Increasing a sense of control over life events
- Improving social relations
Resilience depends on many things, including an innate propensity towards it and the social and physical environment that surrounds you. In large part though, resilience is a skill that you develop.
So, you can learn resilience, not only by overcoming the adversities that you experience in life (hence the saying ‘what does not kill you makes you stronger’), but also by becoming aware of certain strategies that you can put in place to help your resilience.
This training course includes a variety of resilience-building strategies, as well as exercises to help your participants reflect on their current attitudes and assess how to improve their resilience for the future.
A resilient individual tends to be also resilient in the workplace and their qualities are beneficial for the business as resilient employees are:
- more open to change and adaptable
- more creative and innovative
- better protected from stress
- at lower risk of burnout

So, overall, having resilient employees means that a company will have:
- better productivity levels
- lower turnover rates
- better communication
- lower sickness rates
- happier and more motivated team members
This building resilience training course is designed to help individuals develop their resilience and understand its importance for them both at work and in their personal life.
