Planning ahead for uncertain times can ensure your career stays on track and you retain an effective balance between life and work even in the most stressful times. This course will help you build higher levels of resilience so you can better deal with difficulties and obstacles and also cope well in the face of change, therefore making you more likely to succeed and progress at work.
