Derek Mowbray has created an excellent practical book on resilience entitled the Guide to Personal Resilience. This book will help you boost your personal resilience. It’s all about YOU.
This Guide to Personal Resilience contains over 25 practical exercises along with assessments and questionnaires - including our Resilience Assessment Questionnaire. When taken together, they will help to boost overall personal resilience.
Managers operate at all levels of the organisation. They set the tone, the climate and the expectations for the workforce. They wield enormous power over others and it is important that this power is used to achieve mental wellbeing and performance for organisations to achieve consistent peak performance.
This Guide aims to help with the creation of a working environment that provokes positive attitudes and peak performance within the workforce, reduces the events and poor behaviours that may trigger stress and reduces the need for the workforce to call on their resilience.
For teams to perform at their peak, they must be harmonious and self-critical, with a culture that is open, transparent, yet stimulating, whilst achieving a common purpose and, above all, there must be trust. Team members need to feel consistently psychologically well, as this, combined with motivation and a positive attitude, offers the opportunity for it to perform at its peak.
The Guide to Team Resilience aims to develop teams as vibrant mini organisations, sensitive to their environment and with the capability and capacity to maintain performance through change and challenge.
The exercises and questionnaires in the Guide require teams to work together to raise awareness and understanding, and collectively develop resilience and the intelligent behaviours found in high performing teams.
It is a Manager’s responsibility to get the best possible performance from their teams. This means creating and sustaining a working environment that provokes individuals to feel psychologically well, so they can focus and concentrate on their work, enjoy working, feel a great sense of satisfaction at the end of their working day and want to come to work again the next day.
The purpose of this Guide is to raise awareness, impart some understanding and skills, and to make a difference by helping Managers to prevent events and behaviours that may trigger stressful reactions; adopt intelligent behaviours that prevent stress in the workforce and, simultaneously, create and sustain a working environment that enables the workforce to thrive and produce consistent peak performance; and recognise the signs of stress within their team and take the appropriate action.
This is a guide for leaders and managers of organisations. Resilient and healthy organisations have the capacity to respond quickly and effectively to internal and external pressures for change, and have a greater prospect of continuing success. As organisations are formed of people working together for a common purpose, corporate resilience is, effectively, the accumulated resilience of individuals who make up the workforce.
The Guide to Organisational Resilience provides advice and exercises in the creation and maintenance of an Adaptive Culture, Adaptive Leadership and Adaptive Working Environment, which, collectively, help to createOrganisational Resilience.
