TAKING EMPLOYEE RESILIENCE & PERFORMANCE TO THE NEXT LEVEL IN 2018
With the Brexit challenges ahead, creating a resilient high performing workforce has become an essential ingredient to deal with the constant changes and demands in today’s workplace.
Resilience is the ability to cope with persistent stress and adverse events, and bounce back feeling stronger and more capable than ever before. Resilience is therefore a critical attribute for individuals, teams and leaders in order to cope with the increasing work demands.
Moving into 2018, organisations need to embrace cohesive approaches in order to better manage employee resilience and performance posed by ever-changing business demands.
TAILOR THE PROGRAMME
Increase the impact of your resilience programmes by taking a tailored approach to the different departments within your organisation. The key groups within your organisation experience different challenges due to age, experience, responsibility and their specific work demands. It is therefore beneficial to run tailored programmes to meet their specific challenges.
A resilience programme should be designed to coach, empower and inspire individuals to discover and maximise their own levels of resilience through simple yet powerful habit changes. The key driver for personal resilience is habit change, i.e. the more habits you have that supports your resilience and the less habits you have that harms your resilience the more resilient you will be.
A team is only as strong as the collective resilience of its members. Creating resilient teams helps to build a shared purpose, improve collaboration, appreciate each other’s differences and creates a strong foundation for sustainable and high performance.
Strong leaders are the key driver in creating a positive, healthy and resilient culture.
Providing leaders with practical strategies and tools to influence their own resilience and performance simultaneously inspires and supports the resilience of their teams.
Being proactive and planning ahead in 2018 with a strategic resilience programme that engages employees, managers and leaders will play a key role in how your organisation performs in the year ahead.
