Developing Resilience in Uncertain Times
We recently conducted a series of Career Development Workshops for an NHS organisation in the North West of England. The aim of the work was to help employees to deal more effectively with the challenges they faced as a result of NHS changes; as well as to equip them with skills that would assist them in developing their careers. We worked with around 120 staff within the PCT and received a lot of positive feedback, highlighting the utility of the workshop. Some testimonials from workshops included the following:
• The workshop was very useful; I learnt a lot more than I expected to learn, from interview techniques to stress management, which was an added bonus.
• The content was superb. Even the mock interview which everyone was dreading. I felt nervous but wasn’t made to feel silly. I felt that everyone was on my side.
• The workshop was very useful; it made me realise that the future will be bumpy but that I can do my bit to protect myself and other colleagues
It is an uncertain time for many organisations and employees welcomed the opportunity to learn skills to help develop their resilience. We have recently run similar workshops in two other organisations, where participants reported a number of benefits, including increased feelings of positivity and control after attending the workshop.
