This two hour workshop is focused on building resilience in your team members through the development of Psychological Capital (PsyCap) and is suitable for participants of all levels.

PsyCap is the combination of the following set of psychological traits:
-Hope- Setting goals, persevering towards them, and where necessary redirecting paths to goals in order to succeed.
-Efficacy- Having confidence to take on and put the necessary effort to succeed at challenging tasks.
-Resilience- When problems and adversity occur being able to not only sustain but bounce back and beyond.
-Optimism – Making a positive attribution about succeeding now and in the future.
Employees who can develop higher PsyCap levels are not only more resilient to the challenges of life and workplace challenges, but they can perform better, are more engaged and display positive workplace attitudes and behaviours. Building employee levels of PsyCap not only creates a buffer against stress but can reduce levels of stress and protect employees mental health in these challenging times.

By the end of this workshop participants will have:

-Be aware of what Psychological Capital (or the HERO within) is and why it is important to their wellbeing.
-Practical tips on how to build their levels of Hope, Efficacy, Resilience and Optimism
-A bank of resources for dealing with challenges and obstacles both professionally and personally.
-Completed practical activities to build and boost levels in each of the four areas of PsyCap.

Delivery: online session via Zoom
