Resilience is the ability to bounce back from adversity. Being resilient is an important building block of individual and organizational health, well-being, accountable growth, and success.
Failure is one of life’s most common traumas, yet people’s responses to it vary widely. Some will grow after failure while others collapse. As a person who's experienced both responses, I know how critical resilience is to the workplace, to life, and to having successful relationships. Mind Training on Workplace Resilience for Small Businesses is specifically designed to share my experience and expertise in building skills in successful relationships to create a powerful, cooperative, and harmonious working environment for greater productivity and efficiency.
The last thirty years of leadership and management research suggests that resilience can be measured and taught. In fact, the U.S. Army has put that idea to the test. However, around 22% of all organizations have no formal onboarding program, and this number dwindles to nearly zero for small businesses.
During the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, our workshop has been revised to 2 weeks of online training, along with a more affordable price and expanded offerings:
☛ One-on-one live weekly interview with a business owner
☛ 2x2 hours of online live training per week for both employers and employees
☛ A lifelong license for one module of our Cellular Mind Training Program
By the end of this workshop, participants will be proficient in the following:
Building up resilience techniques:
Learning from adversity
Building fusion culture in the workplace
Learning from differences
Reinventing the working environment to meet greater expectations:
“Reeling silk from the wound”
Identifying and correcting false thinking traps
Identifying and avoiding toxic behaviors in the workplace
Building an optimistic attitude
Articulating life principles
Building solid family bonds as a strength
Studies show that human-factor risks can be significantly lowered when employers take steps to boost employee resilience. For example, a recent study by the Resilience Institute found that their programs lower resilience risk factors by 31%.

During the current health and economic crisis, organizations must address employee resilience. Investing in employee resilience can have significant ROI, with research showing that mental health programs can return at least $4 for each dollar invested (WHO, Lancet, 2016).

THE METHODOLOGY OF MIND TRAINING ON RESILIENCE
Resilience is the very foundation of leadership and career success. What is it that allows people not only to cope with difficult situations but also to learn from them? From my own experience, I have found it is the same factors that allow a person to find meaning in what could be a debilitating experience:
First, the ability to engage others in shared meaning.
Second, nurturing a distinctive and compelling voice with a harmonious, cooperative attitude.
Third, a strong set of values.
Lastly, “adaptive capacity,” which includes
1) the ability to weigh a welter of factors, and
2) the perseverance and toughness that emerges from devastating circumstances without losing hope.
In the modern workplace, employees’ mental and emotional well-being, already low before COVID-19, has now dramatically decreased. The focus of Mind Training for Small Businesses is to cultivate and enlighten the abovementioned combination of capabilities that allow an employee not only to survive an ordeal but to learn from it and grow.
Building Employees’ Signature Strengths
The science of psychology is redefining not only our personal lives but also what makes a successful workplace and better business performance. It helps managers at all levels of organizations to select, support, motivate, and train employees. It also helps businesses design products, build better profit models, foster a healthy growth foundation, and save on operational costs.
Most thriving small businesses are based on a people-oriented operation model, which means finding and retaining top talent and keeping workers happy and productive in order to support business competitiveness. It is essential to the long-term growth of the operation. However, seldom have small businesses been able to afford the huge investment in their own organization in the way those big enterprises can.
Mind Training on Workplace Resilience for Small Businesses now provides you with a low-cost opportunity to discover how modern psychology can facilitate business growth, to explore new ways to increase productivity, to identify mutual goals beneficial to both employer and employee, and to implement policies proven to attract and retain the best employees.
