Changing how people think, feel and behave


Adaptive Resilience training measurably improves people’s ability to perform at their best and remain physically, emotionally and psychologically healthy when faced with both short-term crises and longer- term challenges.

Improving resilience, health, wellbeing & success

Our integrative training method and the techniques we teach draw on cutting-edge research from neuroscience, clinical chronobiology (Heart Rate Variability) and mindfulness as well as behavioural, positive and motivational psychology.

For leaders and those identified as up-and-coming leaders, Adaptive Resilience training can help create highly motivated individuals who are effective under pressure. These are often an organisation’s lynchpins, the people relied upon to create vision, set goals, develop strategies and become highly successful achievers and excellent team builders and team players.

Our Method: The adaptive resilience cycle


Our training framework is based on the Adaptive Resilience Cycle. This encompasses the five core leadership archetypes:

  • The Influencer
  • The Implementer
  • The Relationship Builder
  • The Strategist
  • The Conductor

Through a series of practical exercises, participants learn how to boost the intrapersonal and interpersonal skills associated with each archetype. This includes identifying and working on potential vulnerabilities and learning how to capitalise upon existing strengths. Each exercise helps the individual to build and develop resilience on a physical, emotional, cognitive and social level and improve their resourcefulness and mental toughness.

By targeting many areas of personal and professional development Adaptive Resilience training helps people acquire the skills they need to thrive in a complex and changing world.

HRV and emotional management


Maintaining Physical & emotional balance

Heart Rate Variability training and emotional self- management techniques lie at the core of the Adaptive Resilience method. These help people to instantly minimise crisis situations, improve their emotional responses and enhance their performance under pressure.

Heart Rate Variability (HRV) measures the changing interval between two heartbeats. It is a good indicator of overall health and the body’s ability to recover from stress. 

This enhanced internal balance therefore not only improves health, but leads to sustained high performance, engagement and productivity.

Emotional management

The physiological and cognitive benefits to be gained from a high HRV, are why we also teach the emotional selfmanagement techniques (intrapersonal skills) needed to cultivate and sustain the positive states of mind and moods so important to boosting performance and productivity. This kind of self-leadership is an important building block for organisational leadership and health, as it has an effect on team building, morale, motivation and the work environment.
