Everyone will face at least one major traumatic experience in their lifetime which may leave them with severe psychological trauma. This phenomenon has been further exacerbated by major global events, which have led to hardships for people and a sharp rise in psychological distress. It is, therefore, highly beneficial for organisations to seek the advice of experts to help equip their employees with the ability to develop their psychological resilience.
At the Motivational Speakers Agency, we have leading speakers on overcoming adversity, who can help your employees develop their resilience and perform at a higher level.
To combat the dynamic work environment, organisations need to invest in developing their employee’s resilience. Workplace resilience is a strategically important factor for the success, growth, and survival of an organisation. Frequent and prolonged adversity negatively impacts mental health and can result in heightened anxiety, depression, and stress. These factors severely impact workplace performance due to an increase in sickness and absences. It is, therefore, no surprise that overcoming adversity is a key theme for speaking engagements.
