Resilience in a VUCA World

12pm – 1:00pm | April 17, 2019

VUCA has become a recognized term to describe the turbulence and speed of change that employees are experiencing. Employees describe their organizations as now having high and increasing expectations of resilience, and research identifies resilience as one of the top predictors of career success. Resilience has become a ‘buzz word’ but coaches are presented with clients who at times feel stretched beyond their resilience capacities by the relentless of pressure, or clients who manage the pressures until a disruption in another part of their life drains their resources. In this webinar Dr Carole Pemberton will use her experience of working with resilience issues to look at:

  • Why resilience will continue to be an important issue in coaching regardless of economic conditions.
  • The science of resilience and why 2 people exposed to the same event will respond very differently.
  • The signs that a client’s resilience is being impacted.
  • 3 ways of working with resilience loss

The session will support the following ICF competences: Active Listening Creating Awareness Designing Actions
