Change and Disruption Require Resilience-Building Skills

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

People today are experiencing extremely high levels of stress in the workplace. Organizations are trying to do more with less, further increasing employee workloads.

In both our professional and personal lives, changes seem to come at lightning speed — and our resilience is tested more than ever.

Resilience is our 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.

In fact, leaders are discovering the impact of pushing themselves and their teams harder than ever: health and well-being suffer. And burnout seems inevitable.

As a leader, you need to learn how to ensure both high performance AND sustainable well-being for yourself and your people.

If disruption and uncertainty are testing your ability to bounce back, there are steps you can take to advance and thrive.

By modifying your thoughts and actions, you can change your views, habits, and responses. Not only will that help to broaden your own outlook and build resilient leadership, it will also inspire your team to become more adaptable.

And developing resilience isn’t just important for individuals. Building organizational resilience has become an indispensable capability for success in this volatile environment. Leaders are on a quest to build organizations that can not just survive, but grow, in this age of unprecedented change.

We can work together to build your organization’s capacity to successfully respond to change and disruption.

Building a More Resilient Team & Organization

Manage Stress and Bounce Back From Adversity by Developing Resilience

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

  • Understand the importance of resilience and energy in effective leadership.
  • Explore a wide range of recharge/resilience techniques.
  • Connect with fellow leaders who are experiencing similar challenges.
  • Develop short but impactful resilience rituals and routines that take up just 2% of the day, fend off burnout, and address specific personal challenges.
