In a world gone crazy, flexible, adaptive workplaces become ever more important.

While many companies focus on agility, it may actually be resilience that they need instead. It's resilience that creates curiosity, innovation, and adaptability.

This is why Gina Brooks has published a short, 5-step guide to help you build your resilience. You can see it here.

Gina Brooks is an Australian expert on creating effective workplace cultures. She works with medium-to-large enterprises nationally to help them create sustainable transformation.

'A company with resilient employees is one that engages better with its customers, and enjoys protracted, stable growth, even in the face of the unimaginable - such as when the trifecta of natural disasters, recession and political turmoil hits,' Gina explained recently, in her article Resilience by any other name: Creating flexible, adaptive workplaces.

'Resilience is important because resilient people get things done, no matter what.'

Even though resilience seems intangible, it can be learned, cultivated, and improved upon.

Gina suggests that there are 5 ways to build resilience:

  1. Start with your body, because a healthy body leads to a healthy mind.

  2. Get the right toolkit to help you improve and grow your mental resilience, which you can achieve with The ORANGES Toolkit.

  3. Change how you think about stress, because it isn't necessarily negative.

  4. Be present in every moment of every day.

  5. Promote a pleasant environment.

MORE INFORMATION

All around the world, stress levels in the workplace are increasing. And the causes of stress—they keep mounting, too. It's not just heavy workloads and unrealistic deadlines any more. No, the workers of today have to contend with such heady issues as climate change and political tumult as well.

Statistics show that highly stressed-out employees take, on average, two more sick days per year than those who report low stress levels. What's more, an employee who is highly stressed is 50 per cent more likely to show up for work while sick and unproductive!

So, the question becomes, what is the best way to combat stress in the workplace? How do we turn an office full of people who are anxious, nervous, and uncomfortable into flexible and adaptive rockstars?

The answer is simple: resilience.
