Resilience on Projects

Resilience is often used as a quality to describe someone’s ability to bounce back from a catastrophe, to properly manage stress and adversity. Think about it, though, and dealing with stress and adversity is a valuable characteristic not only for people, but for teams, projects and organizations as well.

In this presentation, we leverage the group’s reflections on their own project experiences to identify the truly valuable areas to focus on to become more resilient in the workplace, at all levels. We then show that there are myriad practices that can be done consciously to improve resilience, and address some of the more common barriers to leveraging these practices.

By investing in resilience from the ground up – and from the top down – an organization not only becomes stronger at managing adversity and stress, but also shines more brightly in good times, and those good times become more common. Resilience in the workplace becomes a true differentiator!
