Resilience & You
Archives Available on VoiceAmerica Business Channel
Resilience and You is designed for those who would like to strengthen their resilience, particularly in times of challenge and uncertainty. We interview resilient humans to learn from their stories about how resilience can be strengthened, at work and beyond. Kathryn McEwen, an organizational psychologist operating out of Australia, defines resilience as “an individual’s capacity to manage the everyday stress of work and remain healthy, rebound and learn from unexpected setbacks and prepare for future challenges proactively.” Resilience invites us to slow down, create a pause, take a breath and embrace curiosity. Resilience is currently receiving a lot of media attention. Our efforts to cultivate workplaces of belonging and performance amidst COVID-19 are yielding resilience challenges for leaders and employees alike. Resilience positively enhances our conflict handling skills, our capacity for managing everyday stressors and our capacity for navigating the many relationships we have.
