4a Summary Personal Resilience and its links to Organisational Resilience
Jenny Campbell undertook a 2 year research programme, interviewing leaders across the public, corporate and entrepreneurial sectors, with support from 2 leading pyschologists. The research asked 'What is personal resilience, and how is a leader's resilience linked to that of their organisation.' This summary article describes the results, including the main concept of 'The Resilience Engine' ©. There are a few surprises including:
Resilience can be learnt
Resilience is not confidence
Includes a recovery of the 'energy' used to deal with the setback
Includes the (appropriate) speed of bounce back
Women's resilience seems to be lower, even though their ability to cope well in a crisis is clear.
