Resilience is often defined as the capacity to adjust to change, disruption or difficulty and move on from negative or traumatic experiences in a positive way.
Studies find people with the most resilience tend to be more productive, less likely to have high health-care costs and less often absent from work. Now, some employers are offering programs to help employees become more resilient. They are providing webinars and group coaching to teach skills and habits that help people stay focused and functioning during stressful times at work or home.
Many such programs in use in the military, police forces and school systems are related to a movement called Positive Psychology, which focuses on increasing positive emotions, putting negative emotions in perspective and learning to thrive despite challenges.
We have been working with business leaders, teams, and elite athletes for years on building resiliency and perseverance to help them truly "lead in the moment." This article highlights how programs can help take individuals, teams, and organizations to the next level in their performance. Through workshops and retreats, consulting, and coaching, we can help you build resilience and breakthrough performances.
