Resilience Discussion

Resilience is the capacity to recover from change.  Click for a  Presentation on Resilience you can use with your team to discuss the ways they can improve their resilience and increase their change capacity.

The scientific definition of resilience gives us a significantly different angle. The resilience property of a material is the maximum energy that can be stored elastically – it is the ability of the material to absorb energy when deformed elastically and then, when removing the load, to have this energy recovered. This definition challenges us to think about increasing our resilience by absorbing energy and being ready to release that energy whenever required.
