Resilience - the whole picture, 28th February 2019, Central Birmingham
Resilience - the whole picture
Tuesday, 10th Dec 2019, central Edinburgh - facilitated by Dr Derek Mowbray
The whole picture of resilience is about the inter-connection between the working environment and the individual, so that both the organisation and the individual are resilient against challenging events.
There are specific actions that both individuals and organisations can learn and apply to create a resilient environment and workforce including:
a. preventing the events and behaviours that cause individuals to call on their resilience;
b. supporting and helping people to have a positive attitude and strengthen their resilience;
c. ensuring the workforce can sustain performance and resilience through challenging times.
This one day workshop will provide an overview of 4 aspects of resilience:
- The role of leaders and managers in creating a resilient organisation
- The role of leaders and managers in strengthening the resilience of their teams
- The role of leaders and managers in strengthening the resilience of individuals
- The role of individuals in strengthening their own personal resilience.
The programme includes exercises and questionnaires to make the key points.

What is resilience?
Resilience is your ability to face up to and overcome potentially stressful events and behaviours without experiencing stress yourself. Resilience is a choice. You can decide to be actively resilient or to be passive and let the event or behaviour take its course whilst you ‘switch off’. If you opt for being passively resilient you become dis-engaged from work and the workplace, thereby under-performing and adding costs to the organisation. You’ll decide to be actively resilient if the answer to the question - ‘what’s in it for me?’ - is sufficiently positive to give you the energy boost to form the attitude and mindset to be resilient.
Much depends, therefore, on the context of the challenging event and difficult behaviour. Which is where your working environment comes into play. A positive environment is more likely to persuade you it’s worthwhile being actively resilient, whilst a negative environment may tip the balance in favour of ‘hoping for the best, but expecting the worst’, and waiting to see what happens.
No amount of personal resilience, however, will enable you to deal with relentless challenging events. Sooner or later you will need a complete break from your working environment so you can recover.
Great organisations understand this. Great organisations deliberately try to prevent their people from needing to rely on their resilience by creating a working environment that eliminates the potentially stressful events and difficult behaviours.
Understanding that organisations need to take an active role in strengthening and sustaining the resilience of their people, and in ensuring that the culture of the organisation is one that prevents stress and provokes wellbeing and performance in the workforce.
