Women in Rail London is delighted to be holding a workshop and networking event focussing on resilience.

Working in a professional environment means working under pressure. The transport sector has its particular pressures whatever the form of your involvement. There are the constant demands of customers, suppliers, government decision, the media, daily incidents and then just day to day business and colleagues. It is not a business where objectives can be re-timetabled. However, with the right perspective and a toolkit of techniques, pressure can be managed. This course takes a highly pragmatic approach and enables delegates to both understand and manage pressure while putting in place personal-management strategies to minimise stress and increase resistance to stress.

By the end of the course delegates will:

  • Understand the nature of workplace pressure and the specific pressure profile in ones’ job
  • Understand one’s own behaviours and how they can exacerbate pressure
  • Know the physical, cognitive and emotional symptoms
  • Understand the biology of pressure and how to manage symptoms
  • Have a toolkit of techniques and actions to increase resilience
  • Have a five point plan for starting their resilience building

The masterclass will cover some theory but will place most focus on practical techniques for increasing resilience. Audience members will have the opportunity to complete small self-analyses and try techniques during the masterclass and will leave with a personal list of techniques which they can put in place immediately.

The workshop is being delivered by Dr Gwenllian Williams who gained a B.A., M.Sc. and a Ph.D. in Scotland. She is a doctor of psychology and became a chartered occupational psychologist in 1995. She is also a Meyler Campbell trained executive coach and a qualified NLP practitioner with a reputation for a no-nonsense approach to unblocking potential in individuals and teams.

She leads projects across all deWinton-Williams service offerings and has a market reputation for bringing pragmatism and creativity in equal measure. Her work in development has contributed to two national awards from the Legal Education and Training Group and three other national HR awards. She was voted Trainer of the Year in 2008.

Gwenllian is also a qualified mediator and specialises in workplace and family business mediation.
