Resilience is about an individual’s readiness to meet the world in a resourceful state. It means being equipped to deal calmly and confidently with challenging circumstances while being able to bounce back or recover quickly from setbacks.
With improved resilience comes less stress, less stress-related illness and, ultimately, better performance – and that’s good news, not just for the person concerned but for the organisation as a whole.
The Resilience Pocketbook is packed with coping strategies, tools and tips to show people how to draw out, strengthen and put into practice their inbuilt resources. It includes a questionnaire to identify strengths and weaknesses, and there is a section on building resilience within teams – invaluable advice for team leaders, HR/OD practitioners and trainers.
