The Age of Resilience
The world today can feel stressful. The news is filled with stories of divisive politics, dramatic social change, dire consequences of climate change, and helplessness in the face of global conflict and terrorism. With all of this as a backdrop it would seem like the workday would come as a welcome relief. But this is not the case. In fact, this is where stress becomes more personal — relentless deadlines, difficult people, ambiguous assignments, constant change, and not enough autonomy — these stressors can adversely affect emotional and physical health. All of these issues are a wake-up call for people and organizations to be proactive about developing Resilience.
