Building resilient people and teams programme

What does the programme entail?

This programme is made-up of 10 sessions, each focused on a critical aspect of being resilient. Jess brings extensive professional experience and draws on the expertise of hospice professionals who have worked with Jess at our previous events.

These sessions ran monthly and will lasted 45-60 mins. All sessions were recorded so that you can refer to them again in the future.

In addition, there was a video clip linked to each of the sessions recorded during the pilot in whom Jess demonstrates how to use the tools she refers to in each of the sessions.

What can you expect to get from the programme?

  • You will learn more about how to develop a workforce that is motivated, healthy and committed.
  • You will understand the concepts and practices that help to develop resilience.
