Building resilience in your workforce

January 14, 2019

Resilience is a person’s ability to recover, thrive and succeed during challenge, change and adversity. It is also their ability to develop a thicker coat of armour to prevent the impact of future stresses. And yet applying resiliency when in a difficult moment can be challenging for many people.


What we are finding is that resilience is being lost and this is having a detrimental impact on individuals and businesses alike.


We live in a society which is so fast-paced and so demanding that we have lost the understanding of why we are alive and instead of working to live, we are living to work.


By using simple steps, we help participants understand where their resilience is low and help them to develop this in themselves and others around them.


We need to re-learn resilience which is about passion, drive, motivation, being flexible and having realistic expectations of yourself. If we don’t, it will lead to fatigue, depression anxiety, burnout, resentment, ill health which impacts individuals and business.


Just like a good recipe, resiliency requires central elements:

  • mindful self-care

  • high-quality connections

  • realistic expectations

  • insight

  • vulnerability

  • meaning

  • passion

  • flexibility

  • motivation

In 2019, I will be delivering seminars on resilience and how to build this and psychological agility for RCSA members. The seminars have been designed to offer practical strategies and a fresh perspective on the issue of resilience; allowing both leaders and recruitment specialist an opportunity to consider their own needs and their professional sustainability.
