Highly resilient people don’t fall apart under pressure, crisis or stressful situations; they are able to cope well with adversity and learn valuable lessons from challenging experiences. They have developed a set of skills that allows them to bounce back from adversity. Resilience is also a critical skill if you want to foster a culture of innovation and change. If people can’t deal with failure, they will not even dare to take risks or attempt something new.
When everything seems to be going against you, remember…

Our model explained:
In adversity people experience worry, stress, uncertainty and defeat. Being able to regulate our emotions effectively is the first step towards resilience.
Once emotions are in control, we can look at the situation objectively and come up with solutions or alternatives that enable us to move forward.
The ability to reframe and look differently at the situation we are in, question our limiting beliefs and move into a proactive and positive state of mind.
Here we explore how our strengths, skills, talents and previous experience help us to take action to solve or change the situation.
We learn to build support networks which provide support during adversity, how to be able to ask for help and how to create alliances that keep us moving forward.
When everything is lost and hope has left us, where do we go to find the strength to carry on? Here we look at what give us hope beyond ourselves.
