Unlocking Your Resilience
Sunday, May 30 at 5:30 pm – 6:00 pm CEST

Resourcefulness can be defined as finding ways to get things done, even in the face of obstacles or difficulties. This means being able to approach a situation or scenario during project implementation and find a way to optimise it, whether by doing something differently, taking an alternative approach or reinventing the wheel completely. A resourceful Project Manager needs to be able to face any challenge head on and strive to problem solve efficiently and effectively. This is where resilience comes in.

Psychologists define resilience as the process of adapting well in the face of adversity. Resilience is the ability to get through difficult circumstances, but it is also the attitude you adopt and the actions you take as you do so.

Unlocking your resilience will not only help you overcome any obstacle you might face at work, with project management (or otherwise) but will also empower you to grow and learn from every situation. Do you understand the power of locus of control? Can you recognise your own resources that will help you solve any problematic situation? Join us as we work towards unlocking your resilience.
