Webinar wrap up - Building & Training Resilience, Grit & Anti-fragility

25th March 2021, 16:12p.m. | National

Gymnastics Ireland wrapped up this evening with the Building & Training Resilience, Grit & Anti-fragility webinar with David Clancy & Ciaran Dunne from Hauora. This was the fourth of our Club Support Series sponsored by our insurers, Marsh.

This online event delivered insightful information on how to measure your levels of resilience and grit, as well as techniques and resources on how to improve them to better manage your emotions and overcome adversity in order to acquire an anti-fragility and growth mindset. Skills that can be applied at a personal or club level with both high performance and recreational gymnasts.

Ciaran is an advanced physiotherapist specialising in MSK, sports medicine, orthopaedics, and major trauma. He has an extensive background and experience in inpatient and outpatient physiotherapy care. He has excelled in a range of settings from Orthopaedic Team Lead in the NHS, to acting senior physiotherapist in leading Private Hospitals in Ireland and in sports medicine physiotherapy with an array of professional teams in the UK including English Premier League clubs. He has a particular interest in behaviour change and management and recently completed the renowned Madden Leadership Gaelic Players Association programme.

"Adversity is an inevitable experience we must all face. It does not discriminate and is not selective. Elite performers utilise grit, resilience and anti-fragility to not only overcome but to also thrive in harsh circumstances. If we can harness the power of these trainable skills - we can use setbacks and failures as learning points on our journey and improve our individual wellbeing. We can all become truly high performing in our own right and live healthier, more present and productive lives." Ciaran Dunne explained.

David is a chartered physiotherapist with clinical, consultation, pitch side and research experience in diverse settings. He has significant sports medicine practice with high-performance culture, professional athlete and non-athlete populations using evidence-based methods, accompanied by strong international research ties in industry and academia. He is the European Head of Medical Care and Performance Services for the Brooklyn Nets and the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA. He has had articles published in peer-reviewed sports medicine publications, presented at international conferences. David is passionate about all thing’s high performance, learning and on-going development.
