We live in challenging times, with huge expectations placed upon us, within an ever-changing working environment. The museum sector has been particularly hard-hit by the global pandemic and arts professionals everywhere are experiencing increasing precarity. It’s important for us to ‘stitch our parachutes’ so that we have the resources to be able to cope with these, and future, tough times.
In this webinar, Carmel will introduce her framework of 5 pillars of resilience, and give you examples and exercises to help you develop a practical and actionable strategy to enable you to adapt and thrive. You will be encouraged to develop a clear understanding of your own individual strengths and stress triggers, and guided to adapt the framework for your own particular circumstances.
Building our resilience is about encouraging learning, growth, and flexibility. This webinar incorporates key elements of post-traumatic growth and positive psychology to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to help them overcome personal and professional challenges.
Why is it necessary/important now?
Now more than ever we have had our resilience tested and can observe how we have responded to the pandemic, both personally and professionally. This is an opportune moment for us to reflect on this, to uncover the trends in our responses and to create our own resilience strategies, enabling us to recover from the current pandemic, and any future challenges life throws at us. As we experience this collective trauma, we should be mindful about emerging from it with growth and development rather than falling into post-traumatic stress. These simple tools and everyday exercises can shore up our resilience and help us weather future storms.
