What is Resilience?
Resilience can be defined as “the positive capacity to cope with stress or adversity”. Resilience in the workplace is usually associated with employee’s ability to cope with the various challenges in the workplace: organisational change, information overload, restructures, downsizing, mergers, increased workload, reduction of resources, learning new technology, budget pressures or deadlines.
Research has shown that resilience is “the single most important factor in determining whether a person is successful, satisfied and happy” (Shatt, 2008, The Resilience Factor).
Building resilience also reduces stress and lessens the risk of depression and mental illness. Research by the Black Dog Institute (a mental health organisation) shows enhanced resilience leads to a “significant improvement in job satisfaction, productivity and retention in the workplace.” Provide your employees with the resilience training and skills they need to perform at their best.
The brain’s ability to change, known as “neuroplasticity” derived from the spanish word for “plasticine” has been shown to enable an individual to build resilience. Hebbs law, cells that fire together, wire together and with positive feedback and attention, the brain can form new habits, such as the ability to reappraise more regularly or have a more positive outlook.
Drawn from the research of positive psychology and neuroscience and the work of people such as Dr Martin Seligman, Dr Barbara Fredrickson, Dr Jeffrey Shcwartz and Dr Evian Gordon, participants of Resilience Workshops can build their capability in resilience and handle more of the regular and constant stressors derived from the workplace.
