Building resilience for a volatile world

The human capacity for burden is like bamboo - far more flexible than you'd ever believe at first glance

Resilience Drives Success

The world is increasing in pace, complexity and pressure. We need to learn ways to bend with this, to manage and even grow from the stress that this creates. We need to build resilience, and with resilience, drive success.

Research has shown that physical and psychological ill health from low levels of resilience cost organisations 30 times more than when employees are resilient and thriving. Most CEOs pick motivated workforce, retention of top performers and reduced absenteeism amongst the factors crucial to their organisation’s success.

Using CONTRACT’s 4P method we support you in building resilience, to assist you in all aspects of your life, especially as the boundaries between work life and personal life are getting ever more blurred.

CONTRACT 4P resilience development

Our face-to-face workshop is typically over days or if you choose our on-line learning programme it is the equivalent over a longer period, but divided into smaller segments.

The 4P concept provides opportunity to reflect, discuss, learn tools and methods to increase your reilience around four key areas; your purpose, people, personal and physical aspects of how you live your life. We establish areas that you are putting effort into and where there are gaps you can choose to fill.

The workshop or on-line programme explores:

  • how you make choices; do you react or respond with intention
  • How you can take action on a physical level that suits you
  • What you can do to strengthen and support your personal mindset.
  • What the status of your relationships and support network are, and how to develop them
  • Creating purpose for yourself by looking into your possible futures and making some choices about the legacy you want to leave
  • How you can integrate these decions and actions so that resilience is sustained

Focus areas

  • Building self-awareness about where your levels of resilience are high and where they need to be strengthened
  • An understanding about stress; what causes it, what impact it has on holistic wellness and what can be done about it
  • Strengthening self-efficacy and building a constructive and resilient mindset
  • Clarifying what personal purpose and vision you want
  • Creating a context specific and practical action plan to live in a way that provides you with sustained resilience, whatever may happen
