If this was an equation, then what must be added to “A Punch in Your Face” to get to “The Return of Your Missing Teeth” is “Resilience”. But what is resilience and how do we achieve it?
First things First: Resilience can’t happen without a setback. So lose the idea that bad things only happen to bad people. Someday a setback is going to come, to you, to us, to everyone.
In biology, resilience appears as evolution, in physics, as energy absorption to reform, and in humans as a rapid recovery from adversity (and not only recovery, but use of the opportunity to grow). Failure and Resilience are two sides of the same coin.
Resilient employees support each other, generating strong connections at work. They balance their work and personal life, make work FUN (they share memes) but also develop their emotional intelligence through training their attention and self awareness. Here, some things you can do 🙂
Resilience is an ability that can be learnt, built and developed in anyone. There are a few routines and triggers that help to achieve it:
Crises bring chaos, abrupt change and uncertainty. We’re not gonna argue about that. But among the mess emerges a unique opportunity.
In moments of crisis where everything changes so rapidly, mindsets and routines are able to change at the same speed. The social handbrake that says “if it’s not broken don’t try to fix it” is taken off. In a crisis we need to fix it.
So, there are 2 important questions to ask ourselves when it comes to crisis managements:
Your personal/organizational values should serve as a compass in hard times. They can also help to establish the kinds of behaviours you’d like to reinforce in the future. Empathy, collaboration, proactivity.
Let’s not allow fear to drive us towards a fixed mindset and instead let’s embrace the challenge with empathy, have the difficult conversations and rise above the crisis with integrity, acting from a place of love.
And last but not least, let’s share! Shared pain & challenges generate strong bonds and a sense of belonging between people, let’s seize the opportunity and create empathy.
How do you maintain your team’s productivity and focus on goals without losing their attention or overwhelming them?
To keep your team engaged, over communicate the following:

To enter into a state of flow or a moment of inspiration during any task or activity, 3 things are necessary. Ensure that you and your team have them:
