Why You Need to Be Resilient

Right now, the landscape of pressure for business and enterprise has changed.  

In today’s environment you are going to face more challenges, changes, setbacks, obstacles, push backs and failure than ever before.

You will be under greater stress to deliver more in less time with fewer resources.  You will be confronted by continual challenges, unprecedented changes, and heightened pressure.

You will be required give more of yourself, deal with daily rejection, take on greater responsibility, and, at times, find yourself right out of your comfort zone.  

Will you be resilient enough to thrive? 

Your ability to adapt, embrace and overcome these challenges is going to determine how successful you are going to be.  Your resilience intelligence is going to be the difference between whether you thrive and succeed or break and burnout. 

Your resilience is now the currency of survival, adaptability and success.  

A major key to your success is being able to recover quickly from setbacks, adapt to change, and remain engaged and motivated – without burning yourself out. 

In the Pressure Proof Program, you will learn how to thrive in high-pressure environments, bounce back from setbacks and challenges, and keep your drive alive.

The Pressure Proof Program gives you access to a suite of practical resilience strategies that will teach you how to achieve more in high-pressure environments. 

In this program, you will learn how to:

  • Bounce back faster from setbacks and challenges
  • Remain motivated under pressure 
  • Thrive and adapt in a competitive environment
  • Recover quickly from failures and rejections 
  • Become solution focused and positive instead of complaining and feeling negative.
  • Build mental toughness to quickly recover from setbacks
  • Maintain a positive energy throughout your day 
  • Increase your emotional threshold to pressure when dealing with draining or difficult situations.

How the program works

We have taken proven resilience research and chunked it down into a series of concise and easy to understand video tutorials (ranging from 2-10 mins each) that you can watch and implement right away.

Each video tutorial comes with an action sheet with tips on how to implement each tip so you can anchor the strategies into activity.  

The action sheets also contain a discussion point to help you share these principles with your team.

There is a Pressure Proof Self Assessment Diagnostic that highlights where your resilience strengths lie and identify where you can improve.  

You also receive access to a library of audio expert interviews who speak on topics such as mindset, motivation, succeeding against the odds, developing grit, life balance, and much more!  

This is an ‘on demand’ program so you can access any video tutorial from any location (on any device) at any time.  You can go straight to the video tutorials that are the most relevant to you.

The program is very time efficient as all the video tutorials are concise and require no pre-reading, no forms to fill in and no tests to take.  

The video tutorials can also serve as an excellent teaching tool as they allow you and your team to learn the strategies without you having to take time to teach each principle and action step. 

The program focuses on the implementation of action, rather than the accumulation of knowledge, so you can start to see the results of your efforts before the program is fully completed.

Should you have any questions during the program, you are welcome to email us at any time.

You have access to all the live online webinars, group coaching, and video tutorials for an entire 12 months.
