Building Emotional Resilience Workshop

The technical, financial and manufacturing skills required of us all in the dairy industry are considerable. While pre-farmgate and post-farmgate milk production and our associated products such as cheese, yoghurt and butter may seem the main focus of the industry, there are other important elements that can often be overlooked. These are the skills required to thrive while handling all the competing pressures and emotional whirlpools the dairy industry is subjected to, whether it be managing deregulation, low prices, climate change, drought, technological changes or all the different and difficult types of people with whom we come into contact.

How does one thrive and rise above the constant pitfalls?

What are the simple techniques that can be employed to manage the emotional turmoil that can flow through the industry and outside of our control?

How can we keep our cool and stay healthy when it feels like people are out to get us?

This practical, interactive, high-energy and very informative workshop will build on our existing skills so we become even better at managing the disruptions, constant changes, stresses and angst so that they don't become overwhelming.
