The future will require a new level of adaptability and courage. Resilience prepares people to adapt to change faster and bounce forward under stress.
TRACOM’s unique program is easy to learn and apply because it aligns to how people Think, Act and React in common workplace situations. The focus on overcoming performance barriers and implementing strategies that impact mindset and behavior ensures both the individual and the organization become more adaptable to change.
According to Gallup, 70% of American workers are “not engaged” or are “actively disengaged” and are emotionally disconnected from their workplaces and less likely to be productive.
A global survey done by PWC found that 50 percent of executives surveyed do not believe their culture is adaptive enough to respond positively to change.
According to the American Psychological Association, employee stress costs US companies over $300 billion per year.
An Interact study tells us that 69% of managers feel uncomfortable communicating with their employees. In fact, according to the study “37% of America’s business leaders report they are uncomfortable having to give direct feedback/criticism about their employees; performance that they might respond badly to.”
It turns out that 33% of leaders at organizations with 100+ employees are currently looking for a job at another organization. That’s one-third of all your leaders actively looking to leave.
TRACOM is the world leader in Resilience training for the workplace. Our leading edge, research-based program has reached professionals on 5 continents in over 20 countries, improving the Resilience of teams and organizations across the world.
50 years of experience in cognitive and behavioral science led to the creation of this program in 2010 when we heard the cry of our clients – desperate for solutions to drive improvements in wellness and engagement. The success of the program to date validates the need to address workplace stress with new skills and methods that go beyond process to improve performance one mindset at a time.
The most essential Social Intelligence skills of the future require a new level of adaptability. With Resilience, disruption becomes opportunity. But Resilience doesn’t come naturally to people.
People are hard-wired to fear change and view things with a negative perspective. These feelings can be overwhelming and hurt productivity. Resilience training helps people understand this negativity bias and provides practical strategies for dealing with work and life in a more objective, realistic way.
Companies are understanding how Resilience leads to improved health and work performance outcomes. 94% of Resilience training participants agree that their employer gives them the training they need to withstand, recover and grow in the face of stressors and changing work demands in the workplace.
Removing stress from the workplace and life is unrealistic, but improving the way people deal with and respond to change improves performance. TRACOM’s unique Adaptive Mindset for Resiliency Model® helps individuals and organizations bounce forward in times of change or stress.
The Adaptive Mindset for Resilience Model helps employees understand their cognitive biases and learn strategies to overcome negative tendencies to better embrace change. Workplace stress and disruptive, fast-changing business processes are just part of today’s business world. And while change is a necessary part of daily business operations, it can have a negative impact on your employees. TRACOM has developed a unique model for evaluating personal Resiliency and more importantly, for developing Resilience skills that drive organizational performance.Learn more about the Resilience Model
Resilience is important to individuals and organizations because we are living and working in an environment that’s ever changing. The ability to bounce back regardless of what’s on the other side of that change is critical.
I work in a chaotic environment so I am going to use the fundamental strategies for enhancing Resilience and then be more efficient and successful through change initiatives.
Resilience gives you the ability to put things in perspective with small problems and practice your Resilience on those small problems, develop your skills and when the big problems hit and times get tough, you’ll be prepared for it. You’ll be a Resilient person and be able to get through it. It makes you better at your job, a more effective problem solver, more creative and generally a more effective contributor.
Resilience training is such an important leadership competency because leaders set the tone for their teams. If a leader is highly Resilient and they’re highly positive about things in the organization, their people will be too.
I believe the Resilience course was worthwhile as we are all under pressure to perform. It is a helpful reminder to set goals and improve your outlook and responses in your work life, as well as your personal life.
We have high expectations for our employees in terms of productivity and contributing to our ongoing growth. It’s our responsibility to give them the resources they need to achieve. The Developing a Resilient Mindset curriculum does that.
Organizations recognize that the pace of change has increased through technology and globalization. And they’re committing to resources to turning change into a competitive advantage. TRACOM’s Building a Resilient Mindset workshop provided our change professionals with a new set of tools for achieving positive change.
In our profession, or for any first responders, it is very difficult to go back to work every day and repeat some of the same types of calls, traumas or occupational stressors. If we don’t have a life built on Resiliency and don’t have a self-care program in place ahead of time to address it proactively, it can really harm us.
We are the people that are most impacted by changes that reside at the top and float down. As an organization, we have to have a culture that really embraces Resiliency, but it’s not enough to just embrace it. You have to have the tools and resources to understand it and also have a common definition of what that means for the organizational culture.
Resilient people look beyond the difficulties and the hassles of change, they find the benefits new approaches will have for the organization and themselves, and how they can contribute to making sure change is successful.
People with high Resilience are more likely to support organizational change, possibly because they experience more positive emotions and optimism while going through the change.
Resilient people are better able to cope with stress, remain calm, lower their risks for medical problems, manage emotions, guard against burnout, and remain productive.
Resilience training not only has the potential to improve individual and organizational health, it can also positively influence perceptions of employers and strengthen commitment to organizations.
