Resilience Workshop

This workshop is offered by the University of Regina and CoachingConfidential Inc.

What is resilience? Resilience is ability to stay focused, flexible, energized, and optimistic that we can overcome the challenges, and take advantage of the opportunities that come our way – both at work and in our lives at large.

Our research has identified 7 factors, or inner strengths, that combine to form resilience:

  • Emotion Regulation – The ability to keep emotions in check and remain goalfocused.
  • Impulse Control – The ability to keep behavior in check and remain goalfocused.
  • Causal Analysis – The ability to accurately determine root cause and use resources wisely.
  • Self-efficacy – The confidence to handle challenges and opportunities that arise.
  • Empathy – The ability to identify the emotional state of others – and of oneself.
  • Realistic Optimism – The belief in and hope for a reasonably bright future.
  • Reaching Out – The ability and desire to seek out new challenges and opportunities.

Audience: School administrators, teachers, board members, support staff
