When we feel sad, anxious, stressed or generally “bad”, we don’t operate at our optimum. Conversely, when we feel well, brimming with energy, when things are going our way and we’re getting things done, we operate at our very best. This programme helps you to understand how to create an environment that supports your vitality. How to navigate difficult times or absorb a shock – assess the situation and bring yourself back to a high level of functioning. We call this “bounce”. To bounce, you need to develop skills to manage your emotions, your thoughts and your physical well being, as well as set out your values and purpose. This programme shows you the pillars of resilience and teaches you how to Bounce Forward!
About the Programme
What does it mean to be resilient?
Resilience is having the positive energy to manage set-backs and adversity, the mental clarity to guide your decisions and the emotional insight to learn and grow from difficulties.
Resilience is the capacity to adapt, to heal and to thrive in a changing world. That capacity expands and contracts throughout life. Sometime when an event sets us back, we can be rocked, our foundations challenged, our beliefs undone. Having in place strong pillars of physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual resilience through daily practices helps us manage adversity and emerge stronger, smarter and more swiftly.

About Barbara Nugent
As a former business leader myself, I understand the challenges of leading with resilience. With over 25 years as a finance executive, leading teams and working in a wide range of organisations, I learned that leadership can be a lonely place, that having a clear idea of the kind of leader I wanted to be wasn’t so easy to articulate and that being extremely busy can lead to lack of focus and overwhelm.
The idea of resilience is far more wide ranging that most people realise. Managing focus, dealing with potential conflict, nurturing your executive presence, developing greater emotional intelligence all lead to greater ability to manage yourself and others. Tuning in to what’s happening with you, how you show up in the world and how you connect with others are all measures of resilience which allow you to lead at a higher level, while still remaining grounded and calm. Resilient leaders have the ability to “bounce” skilfully and deliberately rather than muddle through.
