JOIN LINDA AND NICOLE ON THE ROAD TO RESILIENCE
Let’s face it, we are doing the best we can even though there are times that it feels nowhere near good enough. Sometimes we might feel flat or things go wrong, and we’re expected to keep bouncing back despite that.
There’s no doubt that we must all take accountability for our personal resilience, but when it comes to building collective resilience in our teams we need alignment in what we do.
Resilience can be a complex concept, not unlike others we promote in the workplace, such as engagement and leadership.
Of course, we all know it when we see it but when it's not there it can be hard to put our finger on exactly what to do to remedy it. That's because the elements that form resilience are many and complicated.
Workplace turbulence has increased the focus on resilience. Increasingly, teams need to adapt quickly and operate in uncertainty, while still managing high job demands. They're seeking ways to sustain their effectiveness in this environment without comprising physical and psychological health.
The ROAD to Team Resilience helps you recognise how employees, leaders, and team actions impact each other.
In order to develop the resilience of any team, it's really worthwhile to conduct team resilience training, such as facilitated group sessions. The benefit of training for a team is that it helps the team members develop a group understanding, which promotes cohesion of the team and promotes positive team collaboration.
At LeaderLab, we've created a simple and practical four-step approach to team resilience which is an evidence-based framework based on the super work of Dr Kathryn McEwen's Resilience@Work®.
Our four-step approach to team resilience covers these critically important elements :
Have you ever wondered why some people seem to remain calm in the face of disaster while others appear to come undone?
Resilience is what gives people the strength to cope with stress and hardship. It's the mental reservoir of strength that people are able to call on in times of need to carry them through without falling apart.
Resilience doesn't eliminate stress or erase life's difficulties. And, people who have resilience don’t see life through rose-colored lenses.
They understand that setbacks happen and that sometimes life is hard and painful. They still experience the emotional pain, grief, and sense of loss that comes after a tragedy, but their mental outlook allows them to work through such feelings and recover.
Instead, resilience gives people the strength to tackle problems head-on, overcome adversity, and move on with their lives.
