Six Months Down, Six Months to Go: How to Build a Resilient Team

Resiliency is an essential trait during trying times. It makes you more flexible and adaptable and enables you to bend without breaking during difficult challenges. Employees who develop resilience skills tend to have a growth mindset that translates into positivity, optimism and better performance in the workplace.

What is Resilience?

Resilience is something that gives you the psychological strength to cope with hardship and struggle. It enables you to withstand adversity, bounce back and grow stronger despite life’s downturns. But you cannot become resilient in isolation; it takes time, commitment and guidance from people around you.

Why is Resilience Important in the Workplace?

Work is identified as the number one stressor in people’s lives. Those who don’t know how to navigate workplace challenges experience stress and burnout. When employees demonstrate resilience in the workplace, they can effectively tackle stress, workplace conflicts and address challenges on the job.

Resiliency can lead to greater job satisfaction, employee engagement and organizational commitment. Employees with strong resilience skills are likely to have improved self-esteem and employee interpersonal relationships. This leads to better performance and results in the workplace.

How Can You Improve Your Resiliency Skills?

Increasing resilience is like building a muscle; it takes time, effort and commitment. Here are some tips to help you improve your resiliency.

  • Establish a support system and build social connections

  • Treat problems as part of the learning process

  • Celebrate your successes

  • Exercise mindfulness to improve well-being

  • Develop a sense of purpose through realistic life goals

  • Take positive actions to navigate stress

  • Nurture your self-esteem
