About the day
“We can’t always choose what comes along our way, but we can sometimes choose how to respond to it”
This workshop is about moving through blockages and becoming more resilient. We’ll be looking at where we sometimes struggle and get blocked, both as individuals and teams, acknowledging some of the less helpful patterns from the past. We will explore widening our perspective and understanding of situations, expanding our potential for flexibility (a key resilience skill), so that we can access a greater breadth of choices in the way we work. The stunning natural setting of Hazel Hill Wood provides its own wisdom as a resilient eco system, and working with that and a variety of practical tools and techniques, our aim is to facilitate a greater sense of resourcefulness in how we work day to day.
The 'Nourishing the Frontline' - programme has been funded and developed for frontline organisations in health and social care, counsellors, coaches, youth workers, social workers, community workers whose work is typically characterised by low resources, high demands and a high risk of burnout. The aim is to grow effectiveness and wellbeing in work, for you and your team, through practical skills which nourish your resilience and expand your capacity.
