When faced with adversity, tragedy, difficulty, threats of stress or trauma, resilience is our ability to adapt and move on from these difficult experiences.
Testing times may involve dealing with a difficult issue or person, stressful relationship, work pressure, change of job, moving house, divorce, a death of a loved one, health problem…. or you may want to become more resilient to protect yourself and help yourself get through whatever life throws at you.
Being resilient doesn’t mean that a person does not experience distress or pain, but they have the tools to get through, build on that experience and come back stronger.
Do you know how resilient you are?
Everyone has the ability to build or maintain their levels of resilience.
We have created a Personal Resilience Questionnaire to reveal which of the five key components you may naturally draw on for resilience, and which areas you may need to work on to improve your resilience. You may want to build on any areas of strength or manage any potential areas of risk.
Over a set of 70 statements, you will be able to decide whether you agree or disagree that they are usually true for you. The outcome is to provide a snapshot of your opinion of your Personal Resilience.
If you are more aware of your resilience levels - that is the first step in building resilience. This will help you understand where to spend your time and effort to improve your resilience, performance and wellbeing.
