Being resilient at work means:
The R@W Scale comprises seven components to sustain resilience. All seven interrelate and contribute to your overall work resilience. Consider these components as a 'toolkit' of strategies that you need to continually invest in. You may not always be able to invest in them equally however.
For example, if your health is poor this may be outside of your influence to change. This means that you need to invest more actively in other components of resilience, such as support, in order to stay on track.
Resilience@work – provides you a diagnostic that measures how you are managing the following seven components that build resilience and support wellbeing. Each person receives an individual report. When applied to teams, a follow up 2hr team workshop is held where they reflect on why they rated each component and then identify practical ways to improve across these measures.
