Developing Everyday Resilience (DER) courses offer a comprehensive series of evidence-based resilience training programmes. Each course is supported by the most current research and years of practical and clinical experience in the field of resilience and neuroscience. DER courses are designed and delivered by the UK’s leading experts in the field of resilience.

Our programmes have been specifically designed to help individuals increase personal resilience. This means improving the ability to cope with everyday challenges and adversities both at the workplace and at home.

We also offer the EIR-Resilience Quotient (EIR-RQ) questionnaire as instant feedback of a delegate’s resilience levels pre and post training. This gives delegates unique insight into their personal resilience from The 4 Phases of Resilience.

Course Objectives

  • To understand the 4 phases of resilience
  • To have more insight into individual levels of resilience
  • Increase awareness of the relationship between stress and resilience
  • Be aware of what depletes and increases, biological, psychological and emotional resilience
  • Develop a practical and realistic set of skills that can be used in real time to increase everyday resilience and decrease stress
  • Have a better understanding of post adversity growth


Resilience is the ability to cope with the daily stresses and challenges that life throws at us. Most of us work in organisations where there is change, uncertainty, and work overload. There is the sense of always needing to be on alert due to technological advances and flexible working conditions. Some of what happens at work is outside our personal control. This includes other people’s reactions. What is within our control is the way we react and recover from life’s ongoing, uncertain and disruptive challenges. Our everyday resilience levels will either increase or decrease over time depending on the way we respond to challenges. Having high everyday resilience levels means that we are much more able to adapt and cope in ways which help us manage adversities and challenges. In today’s business environment, resilience is critical and seen as a necessary attribute that allows individuals to thrive in the face of everyday work-pressures and stresses.
