Have you gone through stressful periods, or maybe you have lost your confidence, having problems at work, has your metaphoric elastic band snapped?
Resilience is sometimes misunderstood as the ability to be armoured against difficulty. It isn’t. It is the capacity to remain flexible in thoughts, behaviours and emotions when under stress. That stress may come from a one-off event, such as career setback. It can also come from being exposed to relentless demands over a period of time. The demands of being asked to do more, quicker, with less resource and with no end in sight.
When flexibility goes, clients can report any of the following:
Loss of self confidence
Difficulty in decision making
A changed outlook: optimists become pessimists, pessimists lose their counterbalancing perspective
Difficulty in managing their emotions
Reduced desire for social contact
Resilience coaching focuses on what aspects of your resilience have been impacted, and the building of capacity
