Is your resilience being challenged?​

Our resilience is being challenged right now, on so many levels. Whether you are working remotely full-time and trying to juggle family demands, finding yourself unemployed, struggling with what’s happening across the county or laboring to rebuild your company or business, being resilient is critical.

But how do you build resilience? As you go through a change like what we are experiencing now, be open and curious about what matters in the moment, then move forward with a growth mindset. If you’d like to talk this through, reach out anytime.

Take care,

Anxiety levels are high. We are in un-chartered waters, and it can be tough to know how to handle anxiety in yourself and others. This compassionate article from HBR offers clarity and solid advice, such as “Give everyone plenty of slack, understanding, and validation. Also, when someone seems especially anxious, keep in mind that you may not know the full context.”

And Finally...

Work from developmental psychologist, Emmy E. Werner, tells us that those who are most resilient:

  • are problem solvers
  • have had good role models
  • thrive on helping others
  • are strong communicators
