Life, work, studies will throw challenges at you. How we handle these challenges can make the difference between success or not. As Edmond Hillary said, “It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.” The aim of this short course is to explore different strategies that you can use to develop your resilience and thrive.
By the end of this course, participants will
- Have a greater awareness of your current approach to working through challenging times

The course will be highly participative and include discussions and exercises to address the objectives. The participants will be encouraged to interact and discuss the relevant areas to ensure that knowledge and skills are developed. The course is delivered over 2 sessions of 2 hours each.
