Skills for Personal and Professional Effectiveness: building motivated and resilient teams

Measurable tools and strategies to strengthen resiliency, improve decision-making and increase productivity, delivered by licensed HeartMath Certified Trainers.

In our fast-moving era, corporations, hospitals, government agencies and schools are looking for ways to work smarter and more efficiently. Strengthening staff resilience has become an important strategy for improving personal and organisational effectiveness, productivity and well-being. Shifting priorities, packed workloads, reorganisation, and complex communication challenges can easily sway the morale of employees into disenchantment and loss of focus and composure. As a result, the quality of decision making, collaboration, employee initiative and productivity suffer.

HeartMath South Africa Resilience Advantage

Providing a practical framework of self-regulation tools and resilience-building practices can dramatically help individuals gain more inner poise and clarity in the face of challenge and overwhelm. Improved composure facilitates clearer thinking and a stronger identity with organisational purpose and core values. An improved work culture builds upon and reinforces the strengths of employees, leading to increased productivity and innovation.

At the programme’s core are easy-to-learn self-regulation and resilience-building practices that help individuals become more physiologically and emotionally balanced. By improving their levels of internal coherence, a more optimal physiological state is experienced as reflected in the harmonious functioning of the body’s mental, emotional and physical systems. With practice, it is possible to shift to a more coherent composed state before, during and after challenging or adverse situations, thus maximising mental clarity and emotional stability.

Participants learn how their responses to events, communications or circumstance can deplete or renew their resiliency. A basic framework of key physiological processes provides a scientific foundation for the practice and internalisation of the self-regulation tools and resiliency-building practices.

  • The latest findings from optimal-performance research.
  • The Depletion-Renewal Resiliency model.
