Resilience is the acquired ability to adapt well in the face of uncertainty, significant sources of stress, and adversity.
It’s a skill that can be learned and developed.
More than five decades of research points to the fact that resilience is built by attitudes, behaviors and social supports that can be adopted and cultivated by anyone.
Everyday Resilience is unlike most corporate trainings you’ve had. It offers a multi-dimensional approach, addressing the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual dimensions of participants. Honing these skills can help your employees engage in what matters most to them, leading to high performance.
All of our Everyday Resilience training courses are built on neuroscience principles to help your employees learn best. We design our sessions to keep participants engaged with short segments of information to maximize their “attention budgets.”
When you sign up for one of our programs, you can expect an active learning environment with dynamic facilitated discussions. Participants are encouraged to use their time with us to learn from each other, sparking new ideas for taking action in their work and in day-to-day life.
Participants will come away from our training with a better understanding of how to handle challenges, adapt to stressful situations, and be more solution-oriented. That means employees are more engaged, more satisfied with their jobs, and more committed to their workplace.
Research has shown that in 2020:
The pressures of our environment can foster positive results: we raise our game, feel motivated, energized and fulfilled. On the other hand, those pressures can also cause us to become disengaged, stop caring about our contributions to our team, customers and even our health and happiness.
Gallup reports that 65% of workers are disengaged. That means that only about one third of your workforce is driving your company forward. More engaged employees leads to substantially better results. It’s a fact.
According to Gallup
Companies with highly engaged workforces outperform their peers by 147% in earnings per share and realized:
There are many causes of disengagement and there’s no easy fix. Companies have to be dedicated to engaging employees and offer training that gives them opportunity for self-reflection.
Our days can be filled with many emotions, both positive and negative. How often have you seen (or sent) an email that was emotionally charged? What about managing employee conflicts where emotions run high? Emotional Resilience is about self awareness, self management and self confidence.
For high performance, we need a strong mental focus. Unfortunately, the working world is full of multi-tasking prompts that cause us to split our focus and underperform. We also have an internal dialogue that can hinder us from growing professionally and personally. Mental Resilience allows us to adapt and continue to grow in the face of challenges and adversity.
How you fuel yourself, your quality of sleep and movement patterns can either support your resilience or undermine it. Physical Resilience helps equip your body with the energy it needs to carry you through the day.
This dimension explores your compelling WHY. This is similar to a mission or purpose statement when you answer "what or who is most important to you." Spiritual Resilience gives you an understanding of your own compelling WHY, so you can align your performance and engagement to what matters most to you.
Today’s world is fast paced, continually changing and highly pressured. The use of technology has improved our lives in many ways but has also increased our ability to blend work and our personal lives. In fact, technology has made it easy to respond to work emails 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In the corporate world, quick responses and always being available is often rewarded. While the company rewards you, your personal life suffers and feelings of resentment start to creep in.
Change is the only constant.
We hear that phrase and nod our heads in agreement. Yet when change happens in the workplace, employees react emotionally — and these typically aren’t positive emotions. Change can derail us from focusing on our work and cause us to be unproductive. If employees don’t have the skills they need to bounce back from change, they can end up mentally unfocused.
It’s been said that high emotional intelligence is more important than IQ. For high performance and productivity, employees need to be emotionally self-aware and able to manage their emotions. If employees don’t have emotional intelligence, work relationships can suffer, teams can be dysfunctional and ultimately work becomes worse than high school!
So, how do you teach employees to thrive through this high pressured, fast paced and continually changing environment?
Teach them the skill of resilience.
