“The leading edge of management development is moving away from robotic rationalism and rediscovering the timeless wisdom underlying true leadership and creativity.” – Professor David Peters, Centre for Resilience, University of Westminster, London

At the same time there is a high level of stress-related illness, ‘burnout’ and depression among managers, leaders and entrepreneurs.
This weekend course is aimed at managers, specialists, consultants or any professional who would like to:


  • learn and understand the scientific basis of resilience; boost the capacity for peak performance
  • learn how to recognise and manage early signs of ill-health; recover more rapidly from stress
  • explore the strengths and weaknesses of your own nervous system; discovering authenticity and how to grow it
  • identify non-conscious processes and behaviors in order to enhance choice and control; stay centered amidst chaos, and maintain clarity where there is conflict
  • learn how to harness positive body-states to optimise health, creativity and organisational performance – going beyond ‘managing from the head alone’


Parallel discoveries in fields of neuroscience and evolutionary biology reveal how thoughts and feelings interweave. Most important is how negative body states and feelings arise, which can sabotage our creativity, clarity and resilience, and undermine our wellbeing and health. Yet positive body states and feelings can also be harnessed to our great benefit if we learn to access them, comprehend them and practice the necessary awareness.

The creativity and buoyancy of resilient people makes organisations more productive and sustainable.
