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.

Is resilience on the side?

In the Resilience Engine’s experience, our clients and colleagues want to have both wellbeing and performance. Both, without compromising one or the other. What their experience is however, in pretty much every domain in their life, especially in work, is that you get wellbeing versus performance. One is countering the other. There’s a tension, even a fight going between the two. It’s so normal our clients don’t notice it. So…

Principle 10: Model It!

Principle 10: Model It!

By Jenny Campbell|February 27, 2019

These results demonstrate a somewhat profound disconnect between what organisations believe are the best strategies to build resilience, and what they are actually doing. In fact, there is a strong suggestion in the results that organisations largely do not know exactly which programmes produce the best results in the cultivation of resilience. Or, that they may in fact be pinning their hopes on initiatives that do little or nothing to…

By Jenny Campbell|February 20, 2019

Do you tell yourself the truth about what’s really going on? Within the field of resilience, we know that enabling people to see for real the ‘resilience data’ of any situation they find themselves in – under the cosh, in crisis, or with complex opportunities to navigate – is the basis of making a positive change. Resilience goes up and down. It’s not about emotions or an inability to manage,…

Principle 9: Bypass the cognitive faff

By Serena Battistoni|January 30, 2019

Principle 9: Bypass the cognitive faff People need to talk about resilience. They need to know it goes up and down, even for those with high levels. They need to know how it gets drained day to day.

Is your client brimming with New Year resolutions and goals that sweep both of you up into an (potentially over) optimistic view of their capacity to enact on these changes?

But with many clients, they just say ‘humbug’ to all that, because repeated attempts at the same kinds of thing – getting better worklife balance,…
