What is the difference between resilience and normal executive coaching? Two main things: Being able to be aware of the client’s resilience defines very clearly their capacity for change. That means it can help you as the coach set expectations for yourself and the client.

The Workplace or the Individual: Who has control?

The Workplace or the Individual: Who has control?

By Jenny Campbell|January 13, 2020

In my earlier career when I worked as a business analyst, I worked for a boss that was, frankly, a nightmare. In a small team of very smart people who were tasked with deciding on the IT platform and systems to support a whole number of business changes, she was massively controlling, and it caused great stress amongst us all. She would micro manage, insist on her ways of doing…

Chapter 1: Extract The Resilience Dynamic®. “Hands up, do any of the following statements resonate with you? Or are they part of your organisation’s culture? Don’t show your emotion unless you’re happy and smiling. Just say everything is ‘fine’. Don’t show you are feeling vulnerable. Don’t show you are stressed. Don’t show you don’t know.

In this week during April, stress awareness month, the Resilience Engine gets into why one person reacts differently than another to the same situation. You’ve got it, it’s all down to resilience.

It’s pretty straightforward in the clients we work with, leaders and managers across all sectors. It’s down to overload. It’s related to one of the top three barriers to resilience.
