Magic circle firm Clifford Chance has introduced a scheme to help trainees improve their ‘psychological resilience’ in the workplace.

The Performance Optimisation Programme aims to develop more resilient individuals ‘able to sustain their performance with the capability to cope and adapt when faced with periods of pressure and challenging situations’. The programme is being run on the firm’s two-week trainee induction.

It comprises two face-to-face workshops and monthly communications to provide ‘tools and techniques’ to help individuals remain resilient under pressure.
