Building Resilience and Well-being

Resilience is not necessarily about responding to a one time crisis or rebounding from a setback. It’s about continuously anticipating and adjusting and having the capacity for change before the need for change becomes obvious. The goal is an organisation and individuals that are making the future rather than defending the past.

Join us on the Resilience and Well-being for Business Leaders and Managers workshop, to give you the opportunity to consider the key elements required to create a positive workplace culture with resilient leadership and happy, healthy employees.

Resilience is not just surviving, but also thriving in an uncertain environment.

To thrive in turbulent times, companies and their people must become as efficient at renewal as they are at producing today's products and services.

When people are energised, feel good psychologically and resilience levels are high their response to situations they face improves significantly. This presents an opportunity for organisations everywhere as resilience affects an individual on so many levels. It changes how they:

  • approach their work;
  • engage with their goals and objectives;
  • interact with people.

    Defining Resilience

    Traditionally, individual resilience has often been defined as how we quickly bounce back from difficult situations. However, this definition doesn’t encompass latest research and the true breadth of resilience skills and behaviours as well as their many benefits.

    To ensure the definition of resilience includes all aspects, LifeCraft has developed a model of resilience built on the most recent research from today's complex and fast paced environment. In summary, resilience is about: advancing despite adversity.

    Defining Well-being

    The World Health Organisation definition of well-being ‘a state of complete mental, physical and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity’. In summary:
  • Mental well-being includes the amount of stimulation, interests and challenges, self motivation and the ability to make decisions;
  • Physical well-being includes energy levels, eating and exercise habits, good sleep and relaxation time;
  • Emotional and social well-being includes relationships with self and others, sense of feeling valued, positive outlook; knowing goals and aspirations.
