Resilience

The key to thriving during challenge and change

The work environment and the nature of work is going through unprecedented change. Fueled by the exponential advancements in technology, leaders and employees are required to adapt and transform both themselves and their organizations with ever increasing speed. Despite a lot of this change being very exciting, this requires employees to have the right strategies and psychological resources to thrive during these challenging times.
Leaders, managers and employees need to utilize and enhance their resilience. Research shows that high levels of resilience can improve job performance, and that resilience can indeed be developed .

Can resilience be developed?

At PSI, we define resilience as an individual’s capacity to adapt positively to pressure, setbacks, challenge and change in order to achieve peak performance.

By understanding this capacity, based on eight core areas of the resilience model, resilience can be developed using strategies aligned to each of the eight areas. The Resilience Questionnaire assesses this capacity and generates a feedback report providing a summary of an individual’s results in relation to the core components of resilience together with options on how they can develop each one.
