In The Resilience Handbook, occupational psychologist and author Sukh Pabial outlines three elements which can make us more resilient: positive psychology, emotional intelligence and mindfulness. But is this something we can only develop on our own, or can L&D build the resilience of others?
In this week’s episode of The Mind Tools L&D Podcast, Sukh joins Ross G and Owen to discuss:
· how inner work is a pre-requisite to being able to help others
· the extent to which L&D teams running webinars, workshops and courses can help others build resilience
· the organizational conditions that lead to more resilient teams.
