Resilience Can be Learned, Developed and Improved
So What is Resilience?
Personal Resilience is personal! There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to Resilience; it is the “factor” that enables us to recover from situations that may cause us stress or pressure. Through our work with those who have joined our round table debates, 1-day training and longer Resilience Programmes, we have established that creating a common understanding of what Resilience is, is critical to the success of these programmes.
“Resilience is how you work through peak performances, busy, stressful and high pressure times in life, and learn and grow from them. It is not something you are born with or not, it can develop and grow with life’s experience. Sustaining Resilience can come from a variety of behaviours, thoughts, actions and choices that give you the ability to Bounce-Back, to adapt to change, re-balance and learn from the experience to improve personal effectiveness”
It can also be summarised as being resilient and not resistant to change – an important factor within the organisational and team setting.
The road to sustainability in work and life lies in building the appropriate Resilience in order to manage pressure positively.
Enabling Effective Performance
Resilience is also not just something that is needed during the high pressure and stressful moments in life. We can learn Resilience skills and strategies to better manage ourselves in order to:
- Enable out of box thinking
- Open blocks to problem solving and communication
- Take responsibility for raising personal effectiveness in every day situations
- Improve communication and authenticity with others
- Create a reliable platform for success
What Has Resilience Got to do With Stress?
Stress is a fact of life and affects us all. Resilience is not about going through life smoothly and unaffected; Resilience is the skill to deal with stress when it happens. It is an incredibly valuable life skill that will help you in those moments that are not perfect and if ignored could result in burnout.
The Relationship Between Resilience and Wellbeing
There is a huge correlation between Resilience and wellbeing. We all need Resilience to weather any storm and uphold our health and performance. Equally overall wellbeing will support our capacity to sustain a level of Resilience necessary in today’s frantic world.

Working closely with Julie, I felt a boost in my overall sense of heath and wellbeing and was able to regain my peak performance during training, including higher levels of endurance, confidence and optimism. Julie explored every conceivable way of achieving better health, wellbeing and performance for me. She kept me focused on an overall action plan and was an excellent coach and mentor.”
