Learning is part of a jigsaw comprised of many parts and everyone learns in different ways. Whilst these online personal and professional development courses are free for anyone to access over the internet, our full-day open courses are designed with group interaction at their heart. The feedback from our clients tells us that a significant proportion of the learning experience is gained from interacting with their peers during the workshops. If you are located in the United Kingdom and would like to attend one of the full-day open courses to engage in group learning with your ICAEW peers, please visit our upcoming full-day open courses page.

Building your resilience is one of the free CABA courses developed by Dr Hilary Lindsay, which identified career adaptability as a critical element of lifelong learning and professional development.

The research identified 5 attributes within career adaptability - engaging, exploring, experimenting, positive attitude and self-belief.  Building your resilience along with our 11 other professional and personal development courses will show you how to develop these attributes, helping you to shape your career and have the future you want.

What's this course about?

Our building your resilience course explores the tools you need to develop a resilient mindset and attitude. 

Most of us know what setbacks feel like. The way you react to challenges and setbacks is a reflection of how resilient you are.  Resilient people don't dwell on the fact that things don't always go their way.  And when something doesn't go quite as planned, they simply learn from their experiences and move forward.

Resilience also means adopting healthy strategies for managing stress, and being fully aware of the difference between pressure - which can be positive and motivating - and stress, a natural reaction to too much pressure.

In fact, you could say resilience is the cornerstone of adaptability - an attribute we all need during times of rapid change if we want to achieve our goals.
