Building teams that can withstand uncertainty and change necessitates the development of support and communication tools.
It seems like “resilience” is the solution to just about everything these days. Are you having difficulties as a result of a poisonous environment? Simply be tenacious. Working 50-hour weeks while homeschooling your children amid a worldwide pandemic? Try a little tenacity. When it comes to employment, resilience, or the capacity to persevere in the face of adversity and bounce back, is beneficial. However, it’s often presented in a manner that ignores structural difficulties and instead encourages employees to grin and bear whatever challenges they face — and to do so without bothering their coworkers. The fact is that being resilient is much simpler in an atmosphere that facilitates it. In other words, there’s a distinction to be made between requiring everyone to be mentally robust and genuinely assisting them in maintaining their mental health and encouraging optimized performance.
