Start Date: 05 Dec 2017
Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Time: 7:30 PM
Duration: 1 hour
Improve your mental toughness and personal resilience in this webinar. Team building and leadership development company AQR International and a panel of experienced managers and practitioners will explore the importance of these attributes and the need for organisations to support them. This CPD event is being developed with the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Local Public Services group and the Chartered Management Institute's (CMI) Southern region.
The event follows on from research by the CIPR LPS group and Manchester Metropolitan University in 2015-2016 which highlighted personal resilience as a key attribute for communicators and senior managers. It will incorporate feedback from members who attended CMI Southern’s previous events on change management and managing conflict in the workplace. In response to requests from members in both Institutes, this webinar will be part of a series of materials on resilience.
In recent years, Doug Strycharczyk has worked with Professor Peter Clough, of Manchester Metropolitan University, to define mental toughness and to create a measurement for it. Together they have written a number of books and articles on the topic.
Doug is recognised as an authority on the application of mental toughness in the work of coaching, performance, education and sport. He works with organisations to develop performance, increase retention, improve employee engagement, and to deal more effectively with issues such as bullying and the impact of change.
