Resilience at Work

Resilience at Work

Staff development for an uncertain, changing and challenging workplace

Employees are facing increasing pressure to keep up, to do more with less, and to respond to constant change, ambiguity and challenge. Supporting our staff to become more resilient so they bounce-back from set-backs, maintain productivity and positivity, and survive and even thrive during tough times, is perhaps the most critical workplace development strategy we can offer.

“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change”
Charles Darwin

Resilient staff

  • are better at solving problems and overcoming challenges
  • are able to maintain performance under pressure
  • are less likely to be absent from work
  • positively influence the people around them
  • have a positive impact on team and organisation performance.

PB Performance Coaching offers a range of programs based on the Resilience At Work ([email protected])® Toolkit to help build resilient employees, teams, leaders and organisations. The toolkit is a complem-entary suite of measures that recognises the inter-relatedness of employee, leader and team behaviour at work.

Measuring Resilience At Work

Start building resilience at work by taking the internationally recognised, scientifically validated, Resilience At Work ([email protected]) Scale. It’s the only scale that measures resilience specifically within the work context. The assessment is done on-line and takes less than 15 minutes. A personal, leader or team profile report is generated, enabling staff to benchmark their current resilience against each of the seven components of resilience at work. The profile can be used by staff to enhance the outcomes from resilience workshops or individual coaching by enabling them to focus their learning and action on strategies most relevant to them.

The three assessment scales are:

[email protected] Individual: assesses an individual employee’s resilience at work against the 7 Resilience At Work factors

[email protected] Team: assesses the group practices that promote team resilience, against the 7 Resilience At Work (Team) factors

[email protected] Leader: assesses the leader behaviours that support and foster resilience in the employees and teams they lead, against the 7 Resilience At Work (Leader) factors

Building Resilience At Work

Workshops for groups of individuals

Half or full day workshops teach practical, evidence based strategies targeting  each of the seven components that contribute to high levels of Resilience At Work. Strategies are underpinned by the science of positive psychology, and can be easily learnt and immediately applied by staff at all levels. Prior to the workshop staff complete the Resilience at Work Scale which enables them to focus their workshop learning on the strategies most relevant to them. Staff leave the workshop with an individual action plan for enhancing their own personal resilience.

Workshops for teams

Half or full day workshops teach practical, evidence based strategies targeting each of the seven components that contribute to high levels of Resilient teams. Strategies are underpinned by the science of positive psychology, and can be easily learnt and immediately applied by staff and teams at all levels. Prior to the workshop staff complete the Resilience at Work Team Scale which enables them to focus their workshop learning on the strategies most relevant to their team. Staff leave the workshop with individual and team action plans for enhancing their team resilience.

Coaching for Staff and Leaders

Individual coaching is a fantastic supplement to the Resilience At Work Workshops, providing staff with personalised, confidential support to put their personal resilience plan into action. Even if staff haven’t participated in a workshop, they can still take the Resilience At Work Scale and be coached to identify and implement resilience strategies that will most benefit them. Personal coaching is goal oriented, motivational and solution focused, and is therefore highly effective in bringing about lasting, significant and positive change.
