The Resilience Mindset

Stress and busyness are the new normal and it has a downside. It decreases our capacity to focus, communicate and collaborate effectively. If sustained over time it affects our wellbeing and overall health.
The Resilience Mindset program delivers science-based mind training and work practices enabling balance and wellbeing at work and at home.

We strongly recommend that participants download the Potential Project mobile app, available both on iOS and Android, to start to train your mind using guided instructions for 10 mins daily. This will serve as a good companion on your learning journey.
The app is downloadable here:

Key takeaways

Resilience is a mindset. Stress and busyness are experienced by the mind. Through our training you can develop greater resilience. With a resilient mindset you can stay in the eye of the storm and bounce back quickly after setbacks.

In addition to the science-backed mind training, you will also learn many practical work techniques and strategies for responding to stressors, preventing digital overload, and navigating change.

Given that multiple employees would be undertaking this program as a cohort, cultivating a strong foundation of calm, balance and well-being at an individual level can result in more engaged, cohesive teams, leading to improved engagement and job satisfaction at an overall company-wide level.

The Resilience Mindset program is underpinned by neuroscience and includes mind training tools and techniques directly applicable to core workplace activities and demands, for immediate beneficial outcomes.

Who should subscribe?

Any organization who would like to bring mental effectiveness programs to help its employees and leaders manage their work-life with more calm, balance, and relaxation, can sign up for this program.

This program is applicable for all industry sectors, and is especially relevant if your employees and leaders face high pressure, high stress, challenges in being able to switch off and relax, being slaves to mobile devices, and feelings of burnout, i.e., “running on empty”.

A minimum batch size of 10 users is expected per organization to make it effective at a batch level and foster habit change.
