Resiliency – Needed now more than ever


Prior to the pandemic, people in organizations were often overwhelmed, particularly given the turbulent economic times. Pre-pandemic, the concept of resilience was receiving increasing attention in many organizations.

Post-pandemic, resiliency issues are worse. Many feel overwhelmed and exhausted. The good news is that often organizations are taking steps to address this. Workplace resilience is a necessity for both organizations and employees.

Many organizations recognize the critical contribution of resilient employees to the organization’s ability to engage in ongoing development, to survive a major crisis, and to thrive in uncertain times. Some organizations are now requiring formal resilience training. Others provide funding for resilience coaches.

So, what is resilience? Simply put, resilience is the ability to adapt successfully in the face of stress and adversity. It’s the ability to bounce-back – to recover.

For some, a key is creating a better morning routine. For others, it’s more complicated.

There are always going to be bumps in the road.  Organizations need leaders, and employees generally, to develop and nurture their resiliency.
