Overview

Resilience is defined as your capacity to adapt to and recover from sources of stress and adversity. It is often described as your ability to “bounce back.”

As a federal supervisor, manager, or non-supervisory professional in today’s evolving environment, you’re likely experiencing extraordinary demands on your personal resilience. How can you possibly find ways to bounce back in such a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) world?

This course will help answer that question, enabling you to better assess and define your own personal resilience by discovery of the following topics:

  • Why resilience skills are often more effective world than stress management skills.
  • The small behavioral steps which can make a big difference in personal resilience.
  • Understanding how your own personal resilience both supports - and hinders - resilience in others.

How You Will Benefit

Using the latest evidence-based research and best practices, this course equips you with skills to enhance your awareness and development of personal resilience skills.

Through a personalized, practical, skills-based approach, you’ll:

  • Determine which resilience behavior adjustments and insights offer you the greatest personal benefits to support your personal growth and performance.
  • Practice behavior changes related to your own optimism, emotional intelligence, and connections, to guide you on a path to developing and strengthening your own resilience.
  • Focus on the effectiveness of your coping process rather than on your stress outcomes to help you better adapt to sources of stress and adversity.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for experienced supervisors, managers, and non-supervisory professionals (typically GS-12 GS-15).
