What you need to know about resilience.
Emotional resilience refers to a persons ability to cope in the face of change, adversity and hardship. It’s all about having the ability to come back stronger after being knocked back by a certain event or situation in a persons life.
Lacking the ability to manage challenges, setback and adversity effectively can lead employees to feel overwhelmed; they can loose their focus, feel sad, angry or disheartened. Over time, this can lead to the development of mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.
Employees that continue to come to work despite feeling unwell are likely to have a higher rate of absenteeism, be less productive and their performance may suffer. For these reasons, managing stress through resilience training is seen as a priority for many organisations.
