Why you should attend

To move from a place of simply surviving in life to a place of thriving, resilience is a necessary trait. At a basic level, resilience is our ability to bounce back from tragedies and difficulties (such as the pandemics) we encounter in life. At a more complex level, the resilience mindset embraces the idea that true resilience is our ability to navigate life, adapt to change, learn through adversity, and understand our feelings and emotional responses to situations. For this to be achieved, there must be a higher level of personal awareness and insight which leads to a deep understanding of self. Resilience is an asset when it comes to managing adversity because it helps us to overcome it. Rather than crumbling under the pressure and weight of every challenge we encounter, we become able to assess the challenge, learn and grow from it as we go through it. It is resilience that empowers us to continue moving forward, learning, and growing, and building on the things we are learning in life.

The psychological compass, a recent initiative by Dr Adrian Low and his team at the Hong Kong Association of Psychology, has been scientifically researched to be valid and reliable. Hence, it is a key catalyst towards building resilience and it will change the way you think, feel, and communicate with others such as your colleagues, your family members, and friends.

Led by Dr Adrian Low, an award-winning stress researcher, chartered psychologist, published author,global keynote speaker and university lecturer with extensive experience in conducting well-received workshops for both global and regional organisations, this two-day HRO Masterclass will provide you with a strong working knowledge in strengthening the mental resilience and wellbeing of your employees.
