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 at work, 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.
Developing resilience has become an indispensable capability for both individual and 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.
Burnout isn’t inevitable. But to combat it, your people must know how to rethink, recharge, and recalibrate in the face of unrelenting challenges.
