The key to successfully implementing change is your team. The key to your team successfully implementing change is Resilience. Simply stated, Resilience is your team’s competitive advantage during change.
Less Anxiety, More Resilience
Resilience Is Your Competitive Advantage
Like it or not, change and disruption aren’t going away. Neither is the pressure on people to quickly respond and adapt to it. Most recently, Covid-19 has required all of us to think, behave, work, organize and lead differently. Disruption has become the new norm – leaving many people overwhelmed and struggling to keep up.
In addition, recent findings in Neuroscience have proven that our brains are not hardwired to embrace change. During disruption, people can easily become emotionally and cognitively overloaded – resulting in elevated stress levels, emotional withdrawal and unproductive behaviours. Such reactions negatively impact our cognitive and decision-making abilities, affect social interactions and diminish our overall mental health and well-being.
“From a neurological perspective, we all respond to change in the same way: We Try to Avoid It!” – Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz, University of California, School of Medicine
Resilience Can Be Developed: Recover, Adapt And Thrive
We don’t have control over most change, but we do have control over how we respond to it. The key to this response is Resilience. Resilient teams adapt quicker, experience less disruption and enjoy a competitive advantage over teams who are slower to adapt.
A recent British survey asked: “What’s the biggest drain on Resilience at work?”
70% of all respondents cited: “When the volume or pace of work stretches me to my limits”.
When asked: “Where do you get your Resilience from?”
Only 10% cited: “My organization”.
