Resilience is a skill that can be learned. It is much like a set of muscles that need to be exercised regularly so they can perform when needed.
Personal resilience is important for dealing with daily stressors without overwhelm. Life happens; in order to grow, change, and progress we experience discomfort that resilience can alleviate. Even the happy changes—marriage, the birth of a child, buying a new house—can be fraught with the kind of stress that takes the joy out of the experience and causes disagreement and strife between family members. Using the Personal Resilience Profile, our personal resilience coaching can help you and your family learn how you use your resilience muscles, and how to strengthen them as individuals and as a family unit.
Workplace resilience is a vital component of the health and well-being of an organization and its employees. In this article on “Gallup.com”, we find “A recent Gallup study of nearly 7,500 full-time employees found that 23% of employees reported feeling burned out at work very often or always, while an additional 44% reported feeling burned out sometimes. That means about two-thirds of full-time workers experience burnout on the job.”
Those are some big numbers! The benefit of a solid resilience program in the workplace is that it will not only improve productivity, but it will also enrich the personal lives of the organization’s employees. More and more organizations are finding resilience work to be essential to their success.
