Daily announcements in the media of job cuts and gloom do nothing to lift our spirits, and the reality for many people at work is increased uncertainty and pervasive negativity. Even if their jobs are secure many staff, specially in the public sector, will be having to do more with less (as if they weren’t already), and the pressure and constant demand can soon begin to take its toll.

I think that now, more than ever, is a time when individuals can do something for themselves. Survival at work – or anywhere else for that matter – relies on personal attributes like the ability to self-manage and find a sense of purpose out of apparent chaos and disorder. We all have down days, but how quickly we resurface after a setback depends on our levels of personal resiliency, and this can be developed.

Resiliency is a person’s capacity to respond to periods of high demand by ‘bouncing back’. Maintaining morale and effectiveness in the face of challenge and unforeseen change is a key attribute in dealing with the rigours of today. Like the principle exercising for physical fitness and stamina, resilience is an acquired ability to skilfully manage cycles of stress and recovery.

In 2011 I am being asked so often for Resiliency Training that I am developing some ‘survival tools’ to support people who want to know more about how to help themselves. The first download Resiliency – key ideas, is the latest in my series of free downloads. Why not display a copy in your workplace?
