Resilience At Work

What is Work Resilience?

Being resilient at work means:

  • Managing the everyday stresses of work while staying healthy
  • Rebounding and learning from unexpected setbacks
  • Preparing for future challenges in a proactive way

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.

What Our Clients Are Saying...

  • I would like to pass on that the feedback from my team on this process has been very positive, in particular the one on one discussions you conducted. One valued staff member has decided to leave the team following this exercise, which is a good outcome for this person and great that the motivational mapping was able to help her understand what she needs to do next career-wise.
    - Director (Australian Government)
  • After many years in and around education, I’ve become a bit cynical about personality “tools”, and I approached Motivational Maps without any great enthusiasm. So I was very surprised to find that it was actually really useful! It provided some interesting insights into my own motivators, especially where some things weren’t quite what I had expected, and forced me to ask what this meant. It was particularly valuable in helping me to see what motivated the staff I am responsible for. Managing people doesn’t come naturally to a Computing person, so these insights are very helpful. The end results of this program far exceeded the relatively small amount of time it took.
    - Rob Shera (STCC)
  • Marie Ball is undeniably one of the best consultants I know. She presented well-articulated research, and spent time in understanding and advocating what I needed to achieve and where I had to focus to develop self-awareness and fulfilment at my current role. Her presence and positive outlook towards workplace management (and life in general) would be truly infectious for her future clients.
    - Dave Naishadh (Telecommunications, Sydney)
  • Hi Marie, thank you for your excellent advice and support over the past year. Your work on motivational mapping has been great for us as a team and we continue to make use of your insights as the basis of our ongoing team planning. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you again in the future.
    - Alan Duffy (Director Australian Government)
  • I completed a motivational map last year and it was immensely useful. Finding out what motivates me to do my best was much more insightful than the many other workplace testing I have done.
