practical resilience for leaders


Life throws challenges to test us and presents opportunities for us to realise our true potential. Resilience sharpens and focuses our ability to bounce back, steer through adversity and exercise our talents in a meaningful way.  Although genetics and environment do have some influence over resilience, studies have shown that resilience can be learnt and practiced by all of us.  

In this programme, drawing on the best of sports science, military field, neurobiology, medicine, psychology, and emotional intelligence, you will explore the high road leading to resilient leadership. You will unlock the biological resources of your body, heart, mind and spirit, and build practical resilience competencies to live and work productively without compromising health and happiness. In other words, you will unlock your human potential and performance, sustainably.

“This programme is so different from other leadership programmes that I was not sure what to expect at first. But this is truly the foundation to a successful and sustainable career. More importantly, if CEOs want to create a sustainable business and a great work organisational culture, this is the first place to start.”

Andrea Studnik, Regional L&D Director & CampusHead, AXA AP


“Thought provoking, relevant, practical and actionable. I was able to immediately benefit from the increased awareness. This course is worth the investment, it helps one realise that the challenge of our world today is not going away and is universal. How we can deal with it and how we manage our own wellbeing is within our control.So instead of resisting the change, learning how to deal with it is far more sustainable.” 

Serene Tan, Manager, Shell Singapore


“Thierry provided deep insights on how to improve resilience in my personal and professional life. His 2 days training was a comprehensive solution where I learnt very practical drills and down to earth tips that I have been using since then in my everyday life. Thierry has a great ability to transfer his knowledge and get his audience involved. He managed to create a positive environment where you feel free to share with others. I would definitely recommend him to those who want to be more performant in their professional and personal lives.”

Sebastien Normand,Managing Director, Resources Global Professionals Singapore


“A holistic insight into who you are today - and what you could be doing, well indeed should be doing - in order to make the "bounce back" from any adversity faster and more effectively. A very timely intervention for those in mid-careers / senior executives who have "no time" to stop! It was a wow for me!”
