There are a lot of potential variations for this topic. The overview below outlines the basic resilience training for individuals – and we can of course adapt this as well. Another interesting application with different design could be a course for people managers or other special target groups. Other options could focus on certain aspects, attitudes or action factors from the resilience model. We can deliver most options virtually interactive, too.

Resilience is the force enabling people to overcome loss, tragic and very stressful situations and to adapt to change. Resilience is the inner strength to cope with crises and tough life situations so that people can emerge even stronger from it. Moreover, resilience is a preventive force: it helps to prepare for future difficulties, and activates our potential for change and personal development. *The Model, main content has been developed by the Resilienz Zentrum, Germany, Monika Gruhl and Hugo Körbächer, who have written several very recommendable books about resilience.
