Resilience is something that can be learnt
Learning how to be resilient is so important. Whether at work or at home, we face all sorts of challenges that can get us down and make picking ourselves up again difficult. The more techniques we have, the better chance we stand of being able to strengthen ourselves and face the world again.
Stress, conflict, illness, lack of control. Factors that when we’re feeling resilient, don’t cause too much damage. However, if we’re feeling less than, these factors can mean that we start missing work, getting down, losing direction. Being able to call on techniques to build resilience mean that we can take the knocks and get back up again.
So many workplaces face problems with absenteeism and stress as we get so busy. Increasing numbers find it a challenge to manage the everyday knocks. We start getting upset at the little things, experience difficulty with relationships and start feeling that we just can’t cope. By spending some time learning about resilience techniques, we can find the inner strength to not let the small things get at us, and find ways of handling the bigger things with a healthier perspective.
I studied resilience techniques with the College of Wellbeing and am now a certified Resilience Practitioner. I have designed courses on resilience as well as included resilience techniques in my Managing Mantra course for confident managers. Everyone I work with as a coach and trainer, find that learning resilience techniques, and then putting them in to practise, is one of the most valuable aspects of coaching. Once they are able to put these techniques into practise regularly, they find they can go on and share with colleagues, so that working together becomes so much more pleasurable and productive.
