This is the key training programme for addressing stress and resilience in your organisation.  In addition to identifying personal strengths and weaknesses, the training provides specific practical tools for developing resilience and stress management skills.

The Challenge of Change (CoC) Resilience Training programme is a one-day programme, preferably split over two half-days to enable participants to gain experience in using The CoC Resilience tools and to further develop their skills in an informed way. The period between the two sessions can vary, but even an overnight gap provides an effective opportunity for reflection and consolidation.

We have now added

The Half-day Challenge of Change Resilience Training

to our portfolio.  These sessions are ideal when a large number of staff are required to go through the training. 

The training includes a unique, confidential pre-training questionnaire,

The CoC Profile

, which provides a unique insight into personal strengths and liabilities in resilience. The questionnaire resulted directly from Derek Roger's research, and has been subjected to rigorous validation.

The CoC Profile

provides the basis for a focused and detailed action-plan for implementing change.

The training itself commences with a clear demonstration of why conventional stress management offers little or no practical benefit, based as it is on ill-conceived notions such as life events. By contrast, the basic assumption of The CoC Resilience TrainingProgramme is that people are asleep much of the time, and the first steps in the programme are waking up and controlling attention. This leads to a clear and simple definition of stress that resonates with participants and forms the basis for the training: that stress is nothing more than ruminating about emotional upset. All that events provide is things to ruminate about, if you choose to do so.

The link between stress and health is then explained in detail using simple diagrams, and shows why your pet cat is unlikely to die of heart disease! The final steps in the programme are becoming detached and letting go, illustrated with the principle of how to catch monkeys. Coupled with The CoC Profile and a series of practical exercises, the training shows exactly how to develop and implement adaptive coping skills that really work.

The CoC Resilience Training programme can be adapted to help participants deal with difficult and challenging issues, such as restructuring or disestablishing jobs. In these circumstances the training can help significantly in facilitating the transition and providing support.  Participants have commented on feeling much more positive and optimistic about the future, and from an employer’s perspective, having an external facilitator in this way can ease the process as well as reducing acrimony and dispute.
