How to Build Employee and Organisational Resilience in 2021

A masterclass for leaders
9.00am to 4.00pm, Tuesday 18th May 2021 in Christchurch, New Zealand

Facilitated by Dr Denise Quinlan & Dr Lucy Hone, Directors of the New Zealand Institute of Wellbeing and Resilience

Why fruit bowls and yoga aren’t enough: vital skills every organisation needs to know for promoting resilience in 2021

We’re facing another year of uncertainty and change, and we all know how important it is to prioritise wellbeing and resilience in our workplace. People have been asking us what should they be doing and providing for their staff.

So we are excited to announce a masterclass being held on 18 May in partnership with the Decipher Group that will upskill leaders to better understand what they can do for employee and organisational resilience.

Join Lucy and Denise to learn the six things leaders need to know to build a resilient team in 2021, including:

  • How to help people embrace or cope with change and uncertainty
  • Strategies for maintaining relationships and connection through periods of isolation
  • Supporting wellbeing for diverse workforces across different contexts
  • Individual strategies to avoid burnout and support resilience
  • What teams can do to protect each other from burnout
  • How to meet human needs for autonomy, support and connection to build a culture of sustainable high performance
  • Case studies from national and international organisations
  • Workbook for reducing burnout in teams

You will also learn why individual strategies are not enough and what needs to happen at the organisational level to build psychological resilience.

Organisations that harness basic human motivation, and promote psychological safety, achieve both increased resilience and higher performance.

Takeaways include practical team and organisation-wide strategies that make staff burnout less likely while increasing individual and team performance.

You will also receive an electronic copy of Beating Burnout at Work: Why Teams Hold the Secret to Wellbeing and Resilience by Paula Davis. A first-of-its-kind, science-backed toolkit takes a holistic approach to burnout prevention by helping individuals, teams, and leaders build resilience and thrive at work.

When: Tuesday 18th May 2021; 0900 to 1600

Where: Christchurch Club, 154 Worchester Street, Christchurch

Early Bird Price: $395 + GST until 30th April 2021 (after 30th April $495 + GST) + booking fee
