Richard on Resilience
Watch Richard being interviewed by Employee Benefit TV on Stress Resilience following his very successful presentation at their national conference in Dallas Texas
Forget about Managing Stress; Try Being Resilient For the past 50 years, we’ve been teaching people how to manage stress. Yet survey after survey show that stress levels are going up and that workplace efficiency is going down. The simple truth is that it is impossible to manage stress. In fact it is even worse than that. For most people, stress manages them! For the past 10 years, enlightened companies and organizations have instead focused on building Resilience to Stress. The Resilience Advantage delivers high impact and practical solutions to workplace pressures helping employees develop effective and efficient approaches to the workplace stress: Three Key Elements
    1. Resilience is built across a time continuum that can be used in a variety of setting We call it the Resilience Continuum:
      1. Build Hardiness Through Preparation:
        1. Being ready and anticipating difficult events means that workplace risk is minimized and success is maximized. The Resilience Advantage develops skills to build hardiness and to prepare for challenging events before they happen.
      2. Navigate Stress in Real Time:
        1. Everybody has to deal with stress and pressures while it is happening. The Resilience Advantage provides the benefit of giving people skills so they are more balanced in the face of pressure situations
      3. Bounce-Back and Recovery:
        1. Having strategies to recover quickly means that everyone is ready to begin anew. The Resilience Advantage teaches people to how and why it is important to recharge your batteries—during and after the workday.
  1. The Resilience Advantage is geared for all levels of your organization
    1. Personal: The Resilience Advantage helps create a new and effective mindset to employees in how to approach their workplace challenges. No more whining or complaining but instead a renewed approach for taking personal responsibility for how they deal with stress
    2. Team: The Resilience Advantage helps teams use resilience concepts such as redundancy and workload management to improve project outcome. No longer will you teams be fumbling on how to get their projects done
    3. Organizational:Resilience models have already been introduced into your workplace by the IT department, corporate security and supply change management. But we’ve not introduced it to help build strong and effective organizations. The Resilience Advantage will help your organization address change, build a corporate culture and deal more effectively with wins and losses.
  2. The Resilience Advantage Tools are Easy To Learn and Apply
    1. Physical Advantage — Just like working out with a trainer, your Resilience Advantage Tools use physical qualities to improve how you and your team deal with workplace challenges.
    2. Mental Advantage — Challenging yourself and others to think through the best ways to deal with adversity is an amazing exercise at seeing how thinking can be put to use in ways you hadn’t considered before.
    3. Community Advantage — It doesn’t have to be so hard and connecting with others builds community while creating a bigger view of the world. You don’t have to do it alone.
