COVID-19, Free To Grow, We Care We Can, building resilience, FTG,


As news about Coronavirus dominates the headlines and public concern is on the rise, people increasingly experience waves of anxiety, panic and fear. Psychologists refer to these feelings of loss, trauma and persistent uncertainty as an ’emotional tsunami’ and warn of the impact that prolonged stress caused by the pandemic can have on emotional wellbeing, interpersonal relationships, physical health and work performance.


The objective


Staying Strong is an ideal tool to equip your employees to cope emotionally with the stress. It focuses on strengthening resilience, optimism and ownership – a mindset that will positively impact employees’ work and lives far beyond COVID-19. Staying Strong complements the COVID-19 Frontline Toolkit that offers a parallel conversation on physical wellness.


The target group


The programme can be presented at different job levels, matching accredited facilitators from our team to the needs of each group.


Two implementation options:


Face to face facilitation: A one-day immersive workshop where employees get the opportunity to do a deep dive into the various topics or a condensed half-day session focusing on the key content of the programme.




Virtual facilitation: We can package Staying Strong in a way to meet your specific needs e.g. three x 90-minute sessions, two x 4-hour sessions, or four x 2-hour interactive, virtual sessions.


The Content


Information is presented in bite-size chunks that grow awareness and understanding over time.
