We discovered that people who don’t give up have a habit of interpreting setbacks as temporary, local, and changeable.

Dr Martin Seligman

Every business endeavour involves some element of risk, and managing risk is a core function of project managers, leaders and executives. However, despite how prepared we are, how well we mitigate our risks, how good a job we do to transfer or accept them, sometimes setbacks happen. Learning to cope with these adversities (be they due to stagnation or failure) is a learnable skill.

Resilience is our ability to bounce back from adversity. Have you noticed that some of your employees seem to do much better at handling adversity than others? What makes those more resilient employees, resilient? How might your business improve if all of your employees learned to become more resilient on the job and in life? How might your clients benefit? How might having a resilient workforce give you an edge over your competition?

Here at PCI Consulting we work to help your employees turn their most difficult experiences into catalysts for improved performance using a combination of cognitive behavioural, positive psychological and measurement based approaches. These are designed to disrupt negativity bias (our tendency to pay more attention to negative emotions, experiences and information), to build resilience skills (focussing on our character strengths, optimism, engagement and others) and sustaining high performance through resilience by equipping all of our participants with our Personal Resilience Plan.
