Mental and emotional resiliency is a hallmark trait of the world’s most successful people, no matter their career or job role. Studies show that individuals with a high degree of resiliency are better equipped to tackle any challenge that comes their way with optimism and poise. Resilient individuals not only bounce back, but bounce forward from adversity, ready to take on new challenges, and they possess the emotional maturity needed to coach others and support colleagues in tough times. Not least of all, resilient individuals are better able to cope with stress in the workplace.
The good news is, studies show that we can positively impact our own mental and emotional resilience through intentional, practical exercises. People with strong Mindset skills possess greater self-confidence, adaptability and self-composure on the job. They are able to bounce back from adversity quickly, relying on realistic optimism and strong social support to overcome any obstacle. They take personal responsibility for their own success or failure, and are competent at setting realistic goals and keeping themselves on track to achieving them.
When Adaptive Mindset skills are incorporated into learning and development initiatives, the result can be greater productivity, employee wellness and employee engagement.
