As we mentioned in our post on World Federation for Mental Health day on Sunday, peoplewise have spent over 20 years looking at what helps people thrive, not just survive in the face of challenge and adversity. We have identified 7 Pillars of Positive Resilience which not only help support our mental health but also provide ways to fulfil our potential for happiness and success.
At the ABP conference last week we discussed our model of Positive Resilience: the science and practice of developing mastery over our ability to not just cope with disruption and challenges but to persevere, adapt and grow in order to reach our full potential for happiness and success. Delegates were excited by the concept and many have taken the opportunity we offered for a free Positive Resilience Profile via our scientifically validated psychometric. What we learned from the discussions was that:
- All of us can take action to build our capability to thrive, even in very difficult circumstances
- Incorporating small healthy habits into our daily routine is key to supporting our mental health and building our Positive Resilience, in a similar way that regularly incorporating exercise and healthy eating into our lives supports our physical health
- Resilience and Positive Resilience are team activities, not individual events. If you do nothing else, focus on giving and receiving support from others to help you thrive, not just survive.
One of the most exciting aspects of the 7 Pillars of Positive Resilience is that they can be developed by focused attention and changing habits. Helping others develop their 7 Pillars is highly rewarding. If you’d like to learn more about becoming accredited in our 7 Pillars of Positive Resilience model and psychometric, come to our webinar on November 9th at 12:30pm.
