     “The science and practice of empowering people to thrive in change and challenge”

    SOAR is a skills-based program that provides evidence-based best practice skills to improve the overall performance and wellbeing of people.

    Health Psychologist Dr Vanessa Thiele developed SOAR to increase individual capability for resilience and optimism, and arm people with the tools to meet the challenge of change.

    Resilient staff have the ability to remain task-focused, productive and connected to the organizational mission, whilst experiencing tough times. They have the necessary inner strength and resourcefulness to enable them to cope with the impact of commonly-experienced large-scale change, such as

    •    New priorities;
    •    New leadership;
    •    New organizational strategies;
    •    Major change initiatives;
    •    New technologies;
    •    Merger and downsizing.

    “Even when a comprehensive change management strategy is employed, the success of change is influenced by the resilience of individuals to cope with the stress entailed in being at the receiving end of the change”

             Warner & April (2012) Building personal resilience at work, pp55

    Sarah Leech, Physiotherapist

    Well presented and enjoyable – will be using what I have learned today! Thanks

    Beneficial for PTs to understand the stages of change and questioning techniques to be ‘client centered’

    Ireene Siniakis, Health Coach

    Poor compliance is a huge issue for physiotherapists and it frustrates us constantly! All physiotherapists should have more knowledge and PD in this space. Will recommend to others!

    Well polished and adaptable to audience
