Resilience is about rebounding and recovery despite change or adversity. Being resilient demonstrates a successful ability to adapt to the tasks that life or work place in front of us.
Many organisations risk manage and plan for various adverse scenarios but individuals rarely do so.
Your resilience depends on your own perceived positive ability to change your environment effectively. Where a family or group can communicate and be open through regular dialogue, collective resilience is developed and maintained. Collective resilience is about knowing that there are people who can share any upsetting experiences and gain a differing perspective on any problem.
Resilience problems for individuals may be addressed by personality or psychometric testing; examination of the external environment of the individual; or a combination of the two elements.
