The selfie pandemic is upon us and not leaving anytime soon but TRACOM discusses why looking at yourself through the lens of another is even more valuable than simply assessing yourself. Learn how a Multi-Rater assessment can give invaluable insight into your resiliency abilities.
Working adults often look back on their college years as relatively carefree times without the pressure of a full-time job, supporting a family or other grown-up responsibilities. But research shows that stress affects 80% of college students on a daily basis.
While stress isn’t going to go away anytime soon, those who learn to generate positive outcomes and find opportunities in challenges are those who will thrive in today’s workplace. And there is not a better time to learn to manage stress than as a young adult. When people learn to view stress as a challenge or an opportunity, rather than a threat, they are less likely to break down in times of adversity.
TRACOM’s Resilience Model and program offer a science-based way to measure, understand and improve resiliency for students and working professionals. And with both self and multi-rater assessments available, students can get a full understanding of their resilience skills and specific strategies to thrive in today’s stimuli-intensive world.
Self-assessments are inexpensive, quick and a good introductory way to learn resilience skills. But we often have a different view of ourselves than the one others have of us. Sometimes we are very hard on ourselves, we see ourselves more negatively than what we really are. On the contrary, sometimes we might think we have a skill mastered, when in reality, others think we could use much improvement. That is why a Multi-rater assessment provides the most comprehensive view of an individual’s resilience and the best foundation for learning. Muli-Raters give us insight into ourselves that we don’t always see. Students have been highly receptive to this type of feedback as, for many of them, it is the first time they receive feedback on their performance and get to make improvements based on how others see them.
