Increasing your Resilience in a Working Environment
Life doesn't get easier or more forgiving. We get stronger and more resilient.
Dr. Steve Marabol
I love the notion of resilience at work, because most women don’t think about resilience in this way. Get over difficulties in life, yes. Handle situations where we lose a relationship or a family member passes away, absolutely.
For many of us, getting through each day at work takes resilience. Particularly if we work in a toxic environment or our boss is a bully or micromanager. When we look at the worldwide issues of gender bias and gender inequality that exists in so many Organisations, for many women it is about being resilient.
When we talk about resilience, we’re talking about the ability to cope with the ups and downs and bounce back from challenges. In a workplace setting, this can be applied to employees’ abilities to manage anything from a tough workload to frustrating colleagues.
It is said that those with greater resilience are better able to manage stress, which is a risk factor for conditions such as anxiety and depression.
Defined as the ‘ability to bounce back in the face of adversity’ I see resilience as the ability to bounce forward, working out ways to recover from the set-back you are experiencing.
In this insightful and important 1-day Program, you will be shown key concepts about resilience at work that includes:
- The difference between resilience and recovery?
- How people learn resilience – and you can too

Resilience is the ability to recover strength, determination, spirit, flexibility and good humour in the face of change, mistakes and trails.
