Event Details

We are delighted to announce Paul Z Jackson is joining us for our next lecture – Increasing Your Grit: How to Become a Resilient Coach.

In our VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) world, times are unpredictable – both for us coaches and our clients. Many people are anxious around losing their livelihoods, as we all face an uncertain world economy and relentless change. It is of no surprise that burnout is on the increase. In this atmosphere of flux, people are naturally reluctant to take risks, fearing that making mistakes might cost them their livelihoods.

Join Paul as he discusses what resilience is and how we as coaches can prepare ourselves and our clients to meet the world in a more resourceful state so that we are mentally and emotionally equipped to deal with whatever comes our way.

Through a joint discussion of ideas, Paul will share his thoughts on the four dimensions of resilience:

  • Mental
  • Emotional
  • Physical
  • Social

During this interactive lecture, you will gain insight on:

How to build your resources, confidence and ability to adapt and respond to difficulties and setbacks

The principles for nurturing an atmosphere of support, collaboration and progress – for yourself and for clients

A practice for building individual resilience

Paul has trained more than 1000 coaches including senior executives and police officers. He co-authored the ground-breaking book, The Solutions Focus – Making Coaching and Change SIMPLE which was rated one of the Top 30 business books of the year in the USA. Paul is also the Director of leading change consultancy The Solutions Focus and has lectured at multiple universities across the UK.
