Why Resilience is a Critical Skillset at Work
The workplace is becoming more global, specialized, complex, regulated and fast-paced, and many industries are experiencing rapid change. The resulting uncertainty and ambiguity, in tandem with the 24/7 “always on” pace where technology makes it nearly impossible to fully detach from work, has created a tremendous amount of stress and burnout across industry.
Leaders must be able to effectively manage through this change and complexity and quickly adapt their thinking, behaviors and strategies accordingly. In order to do this effectively, they need new tools, and one such tool is resilience. Resilience frameworks allow leaders (and their teams) to adapt to and grow from perceived and actual setbacks and challenges, create strong networks to allow for collaboration, proactively monitor emerging issues and innovate.
What Makes Us Different
We take a systemic approach to teaching and training resilience and apply resilience frameworks to help individuals, teams, leaders, and organizations perform at a high level and thrive. Our resilience tools are all research-based and are informed by Paula’s work at the University of Pennsylvania (including her work with Penn and the United States Army), positive organizational psychology and the Penn Resilience Program. The Penn Resilience Program is the most empirically studied resilience program and has been applied across industries such as the military, healthcare, education and in business. Paula trained with Drs. Karen Reivich and Marty Seligman, the creators of the Penn Resilience Program.
Paula has taught programs to thousands of professionals, leaders and teams on the topics of stress, burnout prevention and building resilience across industries as varied as technology, healthcare and the military.
