Help your employees gain the skill of resilience and avoid burnout with our neuroscience-backed employee resilience training program.
Resilience is the acquired ability to adapt well in the face of uncertainty, significant sources of stress, and adversity.
It’s a skill that can be learned and developed.
More than five decades of research points to the fact that resilience is built by attitudes, behaviors and social supports that can be adopted and cultivated by anyone.
Burnout is a Major Problem
Highly resilient people are almost 4x more satisfied with their jobs and 60% less at risk for burnout than those with low resilience.
In addition, 34% of those low on resilience strongly inclined to quit their jobs vs 10% with high resilience. (MeQuilibrium)
Research by BetterUp Labs suggests that resilient employees experience less burnout and have lower levels of turnover than their less resilient co-workers.
Change is Inevitable (and Necessary)
Across all industries, the only constant is change. As Bob Rosen, Organizational Psychologist, and Bestselling Author says,
“The world is changing faster than our ability to adapt. Adapting quickly is the catalyst for high performance.”
Adaptability is one of the most important benefits of resilience in the workplace.
When employees are resilient, they can adapt to change quickly and effectively.
They are not easily overwhelmed by unexpected events, and they are able to think on their feet to come up with solutions that can help the organization navigate challenging situations.
Adaptable employees are flexible and open-minded, which allows them to adjust their work style and priorities in response to changing circumstances.
The Stress Isn’t Going Away
Both individual and team performance depend on their capacity to perform effectively within the real‐world (that includes stressors).
Because the stress isn’t going away, employees need the tools and strategies to effectively manage the stress while focusing on the tasks at hand.
Stress Makes Us Stupid
Research demonstrates in high stress situations, people end up making riskier decisions that are more likely to hurt than help them and ultimately your organization.
When stressed, we slip back into old habits, using a reactive mindset instead of a responsive mindset to find the best solution for the situation.
Stress deprioritizes the prefrontal cortex (the CEO or executive of our brain). Salas et al. found that individuals narrow their attention, rely more heavily on mental shortcuts and biases, decrease alertness, and demonstrate performance rigidity and reduced problem‐solving ability when under stress.
Stress Impacts How we Work and Interact with Each Other
When we experience stress on an individual level, performance impairments can emerge at the team level. This can hinder effective team performance, such as communication, coordination, and cooperation.
When we narrow our attention at the individual‐level it can lead team members to abandon their team‐level focus and adopt more individualistic orientations that degrade team performance outcomes.
Stress Impacts Leadership
Research shows it’s common for leaders to react poorly in high-stress situations. Specifically, 53 percent of leaders become more closed-minded and controlling during times of crisis, instead of open and curious. A further 43 percent become angrier and more heated.
By learning and practicing the skill of emotional resilience, leaders can calm their emotions to help them make more effective decisions. A high level of emotional intelligence is not only the strongest predictor of workplace performance but a trait shared by 90 percent of high-functioning employees.
Designed to help your employees better respond to challenges, adapt to stressful situations, and become more solution-oriented.
This session underscores the importance of sleep on our resilience: covering the benefits of sleep, identifying barriers to quality sleep, and sleep tips.
When a stressor comes your way, how quickly do you emotionally bounce back? This session defines emotions, asks participants to identify what emotionally challenges them, and walks through a framework for managing emotions.
It’s not the adversity itself, but how we respond to the adversity that matters how our life’s story will develop. This session walks participants through common negative thinking patterns and how to reframe unhelpful thoughts.
What really matters to you? Understanding what’s important to you and what matters most can greatly enhance your resilience. In this session, participants learn the connection between resilience and purpose and get started on the path to discovering what’s most important to them.
Unlike typical corporate trainings that tend to be dull and boring, Everyday Resilience stands out with its dynamic and interactive approach. Here are a few key features of our trainings.
We address the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual dimensions of participants. This helps your employees engage in what matters most to them, leading to high performance.
Our training sessions are designed to keep participants engaged with short segments of information to maximize their “attention budgets.”
Participants are encouraged to use their time with us to learn from each other, sparking new ideas for taking action in their work and in day-to-day life.
Participants will come away from our resilience training with a better understanding of how to handle challenges, adapt to stressful situations, and be more solution-oriented.
That means employees are more engaged, more satisfied with their jobs, and more committed to their workplace.
Our typical engagements include live (virtual or in-person) training sessions with a skilled facilitator. Varying options are available from a general overview to an extended series for maximum impact. Click the “Get a Quote” button below to learn more.
