THRIVE – The Keys to Lasting Resilience (6 week online program)

Outcomes: By the end of the program you will learn techniques to prepare for, recover from and adapt to stress, adversity and challenges that occur in your life.

Resilience is the key to dealing with change, stress and adversity. We are constantly living with change – it is inevitable. With the right tools you can thrive in times of change. Very few people are successful on their first attempt in reaching their goals. People with resilience continue to move towards their goals regardless of any setbacks. They work through disappointment, frustration and failure.

This 6 week program has been designed to provide you with the opportunity to learn about resilience and why it is important to develop coping skills in this area. As the world is becoming more complex it is more critical than ever that you learn new techniques to cope and thrive when challenges occur.

In this highly interactive and engaging program you will learn techniques that will work for you personally. Over the six weeks you will have the opportunity to apply your learning immediately in your life and assess your progress as you move through the program.

This course is designed to help you understand where you are now and where to focus to become more resilient in the weeks and months ahead.

Feedback from Participants:

“I took the 6 Week Thrive program as I was laid off during the COVID-19 pandemic. It was the best 6 weeks that I  spent during this time. I learned some extremely valuable tools to use in my everyday life as well as when I return to work. I liked the fact that the 6 weeks were broken up into key areas. Starting with Mindset and ending with Commitment. I was able to use this program for carving out the  time out for me to make the necessary changes for me in my life.  The biggest step being my signing up for two online courses and working towards two future goals of mine.  This program was absolutely beneficial to me, and it was wonderful to meet  on a weekly basis a group of women, who were all committed to change!” Georgina Pheron

“I was feeling overwhelmed by the amount of tasks I had in front of me. I was uncertain where to start and how to break them down, so I went into a place of avoidance. When I don’t complete things, I deny myself a sense of accomplishment and it effects my overall esteem. Its a vicious circle! The 6 session Thrive program amazed me, it really DID help me get back on track! My inner voice feels organized, motivated and less confused about what to do next. You will be able to apply the skills you learn in the Thrive program to help you achieve whatever it is that you wish to accomplish (be it finding employment, changing your situation, improving your health or just organizing your day) I appreciate the handouts for every session, I have saved them and will refer to them again and again. A sincere thank you to the presenter and to everyone who assisted in providing this program.”  Lorraine D.
