Resiliency – Mindset. The Importance of Resiliency

Mental and emotional resiliency is a hallmark trait of the world’s most successful people, no matter their career or job role. Studies show that individuals with a high degree of resiliency are better equipped to tackle any challenge that comes their way with optimism and poise. Resilient individuals bounce back from adversity ready to take on new challenges, and they possess the emotional maturity needed to coach others and support colleagues in tough times. Not least of all, resilient individuals are better able to cope with stress in the workplace
Stress could be costing you
  • $300 billion —  Cost of stress to American companies annually
  • 1 million — Daily American work absences
  • 4 times —  Stress is much more likely to cause absences than workplace accidents or disease

The good news is, studies show that we can positively impact our own mental and emotional resilience through intentional, practical exercises. People with strong Mindset skills possess greater self-confidence, adaptability and self-composure on the job. They are able to bounce back from adversity quickly, relying on realistic optimism and strong social support to overcome any obstacle. They take personal responsibility for their own success or failure, and are competent at setting realistic goals and keeping themselves on track to achieving them.

When Adaptive Mindset skills are incorporated into learning and development initiatives, the result can be greater productivity, employee wellness and employee engagement.

Research shows that highly resilient people respond to challenges with flexibility, bounce back from challenges, and even find opportunities within workplace stress. They perform more effectively in their jobs, are healthier, more engaged with their work, and have higher commitment to their organizations. The good news for employees and organizations is that resilience can be learned and developed.

Our Resiliency programs teach people about the sources of their stress, their pattern of responses to stress, and practical strategies for altering these responses. They are based on decades of research on resiliency as well as new and ground-breaking research in neuroscience. Participants leave the training with insights about themselves and concrete ways to buffer themselves from workplace stressors. They will be able to utilize these skills immediately to enhance their resiliency and increase their job performance.
