Adult Resilience: Strong Not Tough is a one-day accreditation session for professionals and individuals who face circumstances where greater adult resilience would create an environment that is more productive, vibrant, and successful. Strong Not Tough provides crucial relationship and resilience skills that high-calibre, purposeful leaders practice and facilitate not only in their organisations and businesses, but also in their own lives.
As adults, we experience many life changes. This could range from common challenges such as transitioning into the workplace, entering and ending relationships, and starting a family, to unforeseen and unplanned events such as the loss of a loved one, natural disasters, or financial difficulties. Feeling overwhelmed or anxious is a natural by-product of such experiences.
Strong Not Tough is an interactive program that equips adults with positive coping skills to better navigate these experiences, effectively manage the associated feelings, and to be resilient for life.Kafui Sawyer is the sole Licenced Trainer in North America for Strong Not Tough. Currently, this specialized training is not offered by anyone else in North America.
As a Certified Facilitator of Strong Not Tough, you can help students, clients or employees and their families with long-term emotional resilience - their own personal policy to navigate everyday life challenges. You can lead your team to build an organisation or business that can bend, not break. It is a sustainable community that is strong, not tough.
