What are the 8 benefits for building The Resilience Advantage into your workplace culture?
- Help employees see the big picture: The preparation aspect of resilience supports your team in understanding what the business is about and how to plan effectively to make sure that goals are met..
- Establish the right priorities: Unlike the stress management model that creates panic and distress, resilience helps us stay calm because we know we will get through the challenge since that has been our track record over the year.
- Fight the victim mentality: Employee concerns are legitimate and when employees embrace their own resilience, they are better able to differentiate what are real problems and decrease the numbers of grumbles, gripes and complaints and instead focus on the key aspects of their work.
- Find their power: Negativity is toxic in the workplace and while resilience will not eliminate it, it will encourage your people to take greater responsibility for what they can do.
- Ability to respond and adapt: Overcoming difficulties is an everyday occurrence and change is the new normal. Your resilient team members roll with these challenges and recognize that this new reality is a part of their workplace.
- The learning perspective: Victories happen and failures happen. Resilience helps with both. Celebrating success is central to resilience strategies as it helps build hardiness and confidence. Conversely, when failure happens, resilience helps your team accept the failure and more importantly ask the question of what can we do better?
- A more competitive workforce: Resilience is a cultural norm that your team members can get their arms around as an alternative to how they deal (or most probably don’t deal) with stress. With a strategy to address challenging situations, employees feel more committed and engaged to your enterprise.
