Resilience is typically thought to be about being able to survive and withstand psychological trauma. However, it is also about the ability to learn, grow and thrive as a result of the experiences we have. We all have resilience, and we all are capable of learning more. The key is to learn resilience techniques and practice them.
In the Building Resilience at Work eLearning course, we look at how to change our perception of stressful events that happen at work by challenging negative thoughts. This goes beyond simply ‘thinking positively’ – it’s about how to base our actions based on logic and evidence rather than preconceived beliefs and assumptions.
