Resilience is the ability to cope with challenges and disruptions, emerging stronger, wiser, and more able from the experience.
In a workplace setting, this can be applied to employees’ abilities to manage anything from a tough workload to frustrating colleagues.
Greater resilience is key to managing stress, but remember that too much stress is a risk factor for conditions such as anxiety and depression.
While it’s good to be able to manage stress and hostile situations, if your workplace is putting a strain on your mental health then resilience may not be the only answer.
Coping with Adversity
Coping with adversity means effectively dealing with a very difficult situation and growing from the experience.
To overcome adversity is to be resilient and to know not to feel singled out or discriminated against because tough times happen to everyone.
When tough times happen, accepting the situation as it is—it’s time to sink or swim—will help you become a more resilient person.
Resilience is not a skill that is learned overnight, it is something that must be practiced, nurtured, and built upon.
Resilience is a choice, choosing not to get stuck, choosing your attitude, asking for help, and finding alternatives to move forward from a situation.
Another effective way of being resilient is seeing the positive in a negative situation and hoping that things will work out. Psychology calls this Benefit finding.
