Building Positive Resilience Blog

A global pharmaceutical had been struggling to meet certain compliance regulations. Although efforts had been made to address issues identified in audits, there was limited success in achieving the requirements.

Overall business morale was suffering and employee engagement was low. The HR function of the business had been working hard to support employees but this was beginning to take its toll on them. peoplewisewas asked to run a Positive Resilience development workshop with the HR team.

The brief required a pragmatic, practical approach with techniques & practice opportunities in order to provide tools to build and sustain Positive Resilience within the team, and in turn, have team members, in their leadership capacity, be skilled to create environments in which their team members could once again thrive. In advance of the workshop, each participant completed the Resilience Index, our psychometric developed to measure Positive Resilience. The Resilience Index assesses the five key factors of Positive Resilience.

The workshop was facilitated by peoplewisefounder and CEO, Dr. Belinda Board and one of her team and began with understanding the role of Positive Resilience in the workplace. Activities and techniques to build strength in each of the five factors were shared, ensuring an engaging and practical session. Individual Resilience Index Reports were reviewed with the team and each member of the HR team was coached on their results with a focus on how to create good habits that increase and sustain Positive Resilience.

The workshop concluded with a session on harnessing team strategies to energise, drive and sustain team performance and a focus on developing and maintaining collective positive resilience. An additional separate session was held with the team leader to give feedback on the team RI report and explore strategies for enabling a wider arc of change in the organisation.

peoplewiseis now working with other team leaders and continuing to support the HR team through a coaching programme. A measurable ROI has already been reported.
