Resilience – Time to Get Serious: Confirm Your Place

Confirm your place at our complimentary (no charge) introduction to our new drama-based, experiential Resilience training programme

Thanks to everyone who registered interest in ‘Resilience – Time to Get Serious‘. Representatives from a wide variety of organisations asked to be kept in the loop about our plans for the morning of 6 February 2019. Now you can find out more below and let us know if you would like to attend.

To give participants an authentic experience of our drama-based approach, we’ve decided to limit the number of places available to 20 people. This is less than the number of expressions of interest we received, so places will be allocated on a first come first served basis and limited to just two from each attending organisation.

Who is this event for?

If your organisation is doing work on mental health, wellbeing or stress at work you can directly experience our interactive and engaging content and talk to the people behind our new Resilience programme on 6 February 2019 at The Training Room Hire Company, London. The event will help you decide whether our approach would work for you.

If you’re looking to develop your own individual resilience, this isn’t a full training session and we don’t recommend attendance.

Taking a holistic approach

Many organisations wish their employees had more ‘bouncebackability’ to cope with all the demands, uncertainty and setbacks work throws at them. The biggest problem with this is when the onus falls on the individual employee to learn to ‘roll with the punches’, while the organisation neglects what it can do to lessen the blows and support the wellbeing of its people.

In collaboration with our colleague, Lydia Guthrie BA (Oxon), MSc, Dip SW, we’ve been developing a drama-based, experiential training programme that takes a more holistic approach to Resilience. Presenting fictional characters in realistic scenarios, it explores the dynamic interaction taking place in workplaces every day between personal factors, leadership and the wider environment.

Achieving positive change

Designed for groups of employees in their organisations, our new Resilience training programme deepens their understanding of what it means to be resilient and enables them to identify steps they can take, individually and together, to increase their capacity to draw upon their strengths to cope with challenges and make sense of them.

At Enact Solutions, we put the emphasis on the learner experience. We use dramatised content, multi-media filmed resources, electronic voting systems and skilled facilitation to dynamically bring issues to life and evoke feelings, powerful moments, that open learners to new ways of thinking and behaving. On 6 February 2019, you can directly experience how well this works.

Here’s the programme we’ve put together for you:

  • Welcome and introductions – Getting to know each other;
  • Why are we here? Aims – What you want from the morning and what we have planned;
  • Resilience – Lydia Guthrie explores the concept, what it takes to develop it, and where responsibility for it lies;
  • Experiential content – a selection of scenes and exercises set in our fictional company and based around the day-to-day experiences of one employee, Elsie Nicer, and her Team Leader Neil Cerise;
  • Action planning – from learning into action;
  • Evaluation – key learning points and impact; and
  • Q&A – Answering your questions about drama-based, experiential training.
