Any interaction in any setting can be stressful. D.ESCAL8 run workshops that will build emotional resilience within your staff group. The Positive Psychology movement has grown to focus on what is going well for individuals rather than the standard psychology focus of what is wrong with the individual. This leads to us needing to focus on the concept of well-being.
Developing strategies around emotional resilience leads your staff to have the power to bounce back quicker, than previously, in the face of perceived and actual obstructions. They will develop the ability to see and act on opportunities earlier as they are less focused on a "problem" and more robust to difficulties.
“I really enjoyed this course, for years I have always felt that there were more positive ways out there to deal with these behaviours. Des made the course interesting and I used some of the things I was taught on my next day at work and saw some big improvements over the next week.”
