Building Personal Resilience

Building Personal Resilience
Tuesday, June 26, 2018 - 12:30 to 14:00
CO3 Offices (34 Shaftesbury Square, Belfast, BT2 7DB)

Building personal resilience through establishing a healthy balance so that you do not fall over!

Taking steps to look after your wellbeing can help you deal with pressure, and reduce the impact that stress has on your life. This is sometimes called developing emotional resilience. 

Resilience is not just your ability to bounce back, I prefer the word Bounce Forward anyhow, but also your capacity to adapt in the face of challenging circumstances; one example is the fact that our mobile phones are an extension of our office and seem to be constantly on, whilst maintaining a stable mental wellbeing.

Resilience isn't a personality trait – it's something that we can all take steps to achieve.


The workshop will focus on:

  • What is resilience? How is it made up for me?
  • Understanding the power of our internal Self-talk or what is often described as that ‘guilt’ feeling/perception
  • Understanding how neuroscience can help us better manage pressure
  • Practice of simple resilience techniques that can be easily integrated into the working day.

About Nichola Lynagh

I have worked for the last 25 years within the education system. Throughout this period, I have been responsible for developing leadership and management training and coaching interventions (both accredited and non-accredited programmes) for a range of audiences within all levels of leadership in the schooling systems and in other organisations such as Royal Bank of Scotland – Risk Team; De Paul Ireland; NSPCC; University of Ulster. 
My work is characterised by integrity and interpersonal sensitivity.

My training and learning journey has enabled me be effective in developing relationships, establishing good rapport and trust by others.
To conclude I work from the philosophy of giving all I have got in terms of energy, creative ideas, honesty, humour, commitment and willingness.

In the coaching I offer currently the issues seem to fall mainly into several categories:

• Managing staff - Dealing with underperformance, handling a difficult interpersonal relationship, conflict between staff.
• Improving strategic leadership skills with a range of staff within the organisation/team.
• Building emotional intelligence- resilience and well-being and managing the internal dialogues- dealing with dips in confidence.
