So You're a Construction Professional - But are you Resilient?

Thursday 4 Apr 2019
5:30 pm for 6:00 pm start
Piper Alderman, Level 23, Governor Macquarie Tower, 1 Farrer Place

There’s no doubt that to be a successful construction professional you need Resilience. But looking behind the buzzword, what really is Resilience? Both on a personal and an organisational level?

The SoCLA is not only focused on providing events tackling the hard legal topics, but we are also focused on exploring the non-legal tools required to become a better construction professional. Mandy Scotney, Psychotherapist, business leader & founder of Chirp, will explore the skills and behavioural strategies to build and support resilience for individuals and within teams and organisations. Drawing from neuroscience research and self-management techniques, this event will provide you with applied techniques to thrive in our industry.

Mandy will explore whether resilience is something you can learn, she’ll explore how to build it, and discuss protective factors that can be employed to guard against burnout and the other negative impacts of stress in our workplaces and lives. Finally, she’ll consider resilience in our teams and organisations, focusing on how current and future leaders can create a positive workplace climate in order to promote and support resilience across the business.
