What you will learn

The world around us is now rapidly changing and our immediate future is suddenly filled with uncertainty, panic and stress.  Now, more than ever, it is essential that you are able to stay composed, in control of your emotions, and be adaptable and agile.  

Right now, business is changing, education is changing, and how we work and live is changing.   Now is a time when you will need to draw on your resilience to find solutions, adapt with change, and keep your drive alive.

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

You will be under greater stress to deliver more in less time with fewer resources.  You will be confronted by continual changes, unprecedented changes, and anxiety producing pressures that have no specific end in sight.  

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

 Will you be resilient enough to thrive? 

A major key to your success is being able to flow with change, adapt to pressure, and remain engaged and motivated – without burning yourself out.  This is greatly determined by how fast you can bounce back from the setbacks, challenges, and pressures that may otherwise slow you down, wear you out, or get in your way.  

In the Pressure Proof Program, you will learn how to thrive in high-pressure environments, bounce back from setbacks and challenges, adapt to change, keep your drive alive, and build lasting resilience in personal and professional life.

Your resilience will help you to adapt, endure and overcome the unique and overwhelming changes and challenges that you are currently facing due to the disruption and massive impact that the coronavirus is having on industry, business and education.

You will have 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
  • Develop a resilient mental attitude 
  • 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.

Throughout the year you will receive priority invitations to attend online seminars. 

You also have access to several audio expert interviews on resilience. 

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.

Each month we will run a live coaching tutorial where we will answer any of your questions about the strategies in the video tutorials. You can also email through your questions and a recording will be sent out to you if you are unable to attend the live event.  

Each month you will receive priority invitations to attend online seminars on a range of topics on resilience, high performance, personal management, adapting to change and energy management (see ‘UPCOMING ONLINE SEMINARS’ ).   

You also have access to several audio expert interviews on resilience.  

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