Disruption Requires Resilience-Building Skills

Developing resilience helps individuals and organizations manage their energy and perform at their best.

Organizations today are trying to do more with less, further increasing employee workloads and stress. Rapid change and disruption have taxed both individual and collective resilience levels.

As a leader, you need to ensure high performance and sustainable well-being — both for yourself and your people. There are steps that you and your team can take to build resilience, broaden your outlook, and become more adaptable to change.

Resilience-building is about increasing our individual and collective ability to bounce back from adversity. It’s what allows us to recover from change or hardship, whether in the workplace or life more generally. But developing resilience isn’t just for individuals.

Organizational resilience has become an indispensable capability for enterprise-wide success. Leaders are on a quest to build organizations that don’t just survive, but actually grow and thrive, in this era of unprecedented change.

Resilient organizations have teams who rally together on common goals, are open and responsive to the challenges placed before them, and work tirelessly through ambiguity and uncertainty. Intentional efforts towards collective resilience-building strengthens and reinforces individual resilience, signaling to each member of the organization the importance of incorporating practices that keep them engaged and motivated, and capable of giving their all to what they do — at work and beyond.

Resilience-Building for a Stronger Team & Organization

Bounce Back From Adversity by Developing Resilience

Build engaged, motivated, and recharged teams with these 4 resilience-building steps:

  • Understand the importance of resilience and managing energy in effective leadership.
  • Explore a wide range of recharging and resilience-building techniques.
  • Connect with fellow leaders who are experiencing similar challenges.
  • Develop short but impactful resilience rituals and routines that fend off burnout and address challenges.

“The Burn Bright [Resilience Advantage] program was a succinct and effective opportunity to pause, take stock, and implement changes to improve resiliency. I especially appreciated the “small steps” approach to increase the likelihood of longer-term habits/success.”
