Friday Footnote #48

Written by / Friday 23rd April 2021

Each week we share loads of content amongst Team ION and with our network. Content that inspires us, which we find helpful or just makes us smile. We thought we would start sharing these insights every Friday. Welcome to Friday Footnote.

Building Proactive Resilience

4Cs.JPGWe were delighted to announce earlier this week our next virtual learning session, a 2-part session covering Mental Toughness: Building Proactive Resilience.  Led by Leadership Development Specialist, and AQR International accredited practitioner, Andrew Veevers, this session is for anyone who would like to find out more about mental toughness, and how to build it into their personal development plans. 

The session will cover; the origins of mental toughness, how to measure it, the 4C's and 8 factors of mental toughness, and 20+ exercises spread over the 6 interventions of mental toughness, to support the development of mental toughness and/or mental sensitivity. By the end of this session, attendees will have a toolkit of exercises they can personally use for their own development, as well as share with friends, family, and colleagues.

The sessions take place on Wednesday 12th and Wednesday 19th May, both starting at 1.30 pm. And we have already had sign-ups from Europe and Australia. Sign up today



kaye_CBN_event.JPGLearning is obviously a key part of ION life. We're #alwayslearning. This week Adam attended a Swansea University 'Nailing Instagram' webinar with Tanya Whitebits, discussing how to maximise the platform to tell your brand story. Keep an eye out in future weeks for further details on the ION Instagram account.

Last week Kaye completed a mini-virtual ION tour. First of all, she joined over 60 other individuals on the 4theregion 'Start-Up and Business Owners Forum' and later that week joined our friends at the Swansea City Business Network, to discuss 'Operation Re-start' alongside Swansea City CEO Julian Winter, City & County of Swansea Leader Rob Stewart and Paul Morton from Vodafone Business. This was on top of obviously leading our weekly #IONOpenDoors session

Time is running out

Thanks to WEFO, we are currently able to offer our leadership programmes fully funded. However, the funding is currently due to end at the end of August 2021. Therefore, all programmes which start before the end of August 2021 are fully funded, and you can find details of these programmes on the courses page of our website.

Our next New Leaders programme is the final scheduled fully funded ILM Level 3 programme so if you are interested, check it out today. There are only 14 spaces remaining.
