The piece is called “Building Resilience: How Learning Leaders Can Thrive During Times of Change”by Jo Maddocks for the Training Industry website. Jo is a Chief Psychologist for Development who works to boost people’s emotional intelligence (EI) and resilience in the workplace. With over 25 years experience as a business psychologist, Jo has tackled a vast range of issues to help improve individual and business performance.
His great piece takes a deep-dive into the four psychological stages eLearning leaders can use to cope with change and adversity, which are:
- Survive - How we respond
- Adapt - How we adjust
- Recover - How we bounce back
- Thrive - How we grow
“Self-reflection can feel uncomfortable, particularly if it hasn’t been part of organizational culture before, but it’s vital for longer-term health and well-being. Moving forward from a challenging situation or environment can equip you with greater insight into your strengths and how to overcome adversity. As a result, you will be better able to tackle whatever obstacles come your way and utilize your learning to bring about positive change in your organization — and in your life.”
