Building a Resilient Team

The Influential Fundraiser

Supporting your teams to be resilient and motivated during challenge and change

Maintaining the ability to think clearly and operate effectively through challenging times is a valuable skill. Part of that skill is recognising and understanding our responses to challenge. Another part is knowing how to strengthen our resilience and regain our motivation without burning out.

This online learning session is specifically designed to help managers to support their teams during times of high challenge and rapid change.

The day progresses through five core elements – healthy thinking, taking action, regaining motivation, staying connected and looking after yourself.

All our public training is scheduled when enough demand is there, so please register your interest here, and we'll let you know as soon as a new date is set.
If you have 6 or more people to train it's worth getting in touch to discuss in-house options.

These include:
  • your choice of structure – as well as choosing dates to suit you, you can also decide whether to have the content delivered in one full day, two half-day sessions or four bitesize sessions over separate days.
  • tailoring options – if you're looking to focus on particular elements of the programme, we can look into this.
  • self-directed learning – this enables participants to set learning goals, acquire knowledge and skills, set their own actions and evaluate themselves using a customised web portal which we'll build for you.
In order to make sure your in-house training needs are met, the best way to start this process is with a conversation (for free of course). Contact us online or call 020 7978 1516 to speak to one of our experienced consultants.

Practical tools and approaches are introduced to build focus and move forward important areas of work. Participants will also be introduced to techniques to motivate others. The session includes tools to support and get the best out of yourself and participants will learn how to use these with others during challenging situations.

The programme will include interactive group sessions and peer coaching. In addition, much of the work is based around personal reflection, application to real-work challenges and action planning. Following the programme, participants will be asked to complete an individual a plan to help them to map actions they can take to support others.

Who is the programme for?

Managers of individuals or teams who are experiencing unexpected challenges in their roles
