What is Your Story about Resilience?

What is ‘Your Story about Resilience?

What is Your Story about Resilience is a one-on-one online conversation with Peter de Kuster. It is one of 12 virtual conversations around our core themes: Entrepreneurship, Passion, Self Promotion, Money, Time, Self, Innovation and Creativity. Further information on how to connect with Peter will be send when you mail him at theherojourneyquestionnaires@gmail.com

To overcome the inevitable changes, stresses and setbacks of the professional world, individuals and organisations need resilience.

In this virtual conversation, we will:

• Consider why experiencing change can be so difficult.

• Learn to develop a growth mindset, where setbacks are seen as temporary learning experiences.

• Create a toolbox of resources to use when times get tough and consider what new strategies might be useful.

• Explore how we might take a new perspective on difficult events.

What characterises mastery of this skill?

Resilient employees are able to remain energetic, healthy and productive during and after stressful events. They understand loss as a natural part of all professional  (and personal) life, and their growth mindset enables them to quickly rebuild. They stay positive by recalling past successes and regard stressful episodes as an opportunity from which to learn.

What characterises a lack of this skill?

Employees with a lack of resilience are  more likely to burn out or suffer from  stress. High levels of pressure distract them from work and damage their ability to focus. They might struggle to develop awareness  of the physical signs of stress (leading to poor self-care) and take a long time to recover from failures.

The format of this conversation is highly interactive and involves a combination of teaching, and reflection. Peter de Kuster aims to create a confidential space where you are welcome to contribute freely and comfortably.
