Week 7: Building resilience – skills


This week you will consider your existing skills, in particular those skills that support resilience. You will look at the link between resilience and adaptability and use a career adaptability questionnaire to think about your own approach to career development. You’ll also explore the concept of ‘control’ over your working life, and where you feel that currently lies.

As before, continue to note your thoughts either in the online toolkit or in your notebook.
