A Resilience Speaker/Coach Has Become Pivotal in the Modern Business Strategy

In a world riddled with uncertainty and change blowing from every direction, organisational resilience

has become a priority for the modern company.

Every organisation is susceptible to shocks that emanate from business challenges and winds of change that can have a negative bearing. It is incumbent upon business leaders and policy makers to find effective ways to curtail their seismic impact. Or better yet, turn the tide in the organisation’s favour.

Organisational Resilience is More than
just Bouncing Back

Jillian, an international speaker, addressing organisational leaders

Business resilience planning is one of the best measures companies can undertake to prepare themselves and their employees for challenges, whether it’s everyday workplace challenges or bigger risks such as economic downturns, addressing skills gaps or dealing with disruptive technologies and practices like artificial intelligence and remote work.

Building organisational resilience makes it easier for companies and their people to bounce back from setbacks. More importantly, having a resilient culture ensures businesses are better equipped to bounce forward from difficult times or disruptive change.

A mindset shift is at the heart of every organisational resilience, and in a fast-evolving business landscape, one of the best ways to drill it into your company fabric is by bringing in an experienced resilience speaker or resilience coach.

Team Building & Wellness Initiatives only a Stop-Gap

Industry challenges and disruptions aside, employees the world over are facing challenges of their own.

Burn-out is a thing, and establishing a work-life balance continues to be a conundrum. Interpersonal problems among employees and poor organisational culture continue to thrive, and job insecurity is a hanging cloud. The spectre of change and disruption from artificial intelligence and other technologies are a real worry for many.

It is little surprise that mental health issues related to work are higher than ever before.

But how does a resilience speaker tie in with this?

Jillian in a corporate training session about resilience

Many companies are doing their bit to ensure the wellbeing of their employees. However, data shows that many wellness initiatives are not as effective as once thought, only serving as stop-gap measures.

The best solution is to understand the challenges your people are grappling with, and develop effective solutions that address the problem from the root cause. Motivational business speakers have evolved from mere inspirational speakers who stir up a crowd with moving stories, to subject matter experts and professional business mentors who can have far-reaching impact on your workforce, more so as touches on employee morale and productivity.

If you are looking to find a speaker that can deliver the goods, you either want an expert’s expert or a resilience speaker with great case studies to share. Jillian Haslam brings both, which is why she is widely regarded one of the most impactful female motivational speakers UK today.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is resilience?

Resilience is the ability to deal with setbacks and bounce back from difficult moments or events. Being resilient means having the flexibility to adapt to, recover from and grow out of life’s challenging situations. Resilience is not about ignoring problems or feigning positivity in the face of adversity. Rather, it is about acknowledging the challenges for what they are, and having the resolve to keep pushing forward and not caving in to the stress or pressure – or resorting to unhealthy coping strategies.

What is organisational resilience?

Resilience can be personal or organisational. The former involves navigating personal challenges such as loss of a job, workplace challenges, financial problems, relationship issues, terminal illness or death of a loved one. Organisational resilience, for its part, is the ability of businesses to anticipate challenges, and consequently institute measures that allow the organisation to adapt and respond in order to survive and prosper, especially in the midst of change and disruption (resilience planning). A resilience speaker or coach can help organisations and their people – from leaders to employees – develop resilience.

How to build resilience?

Resilience is a mindset, and the good thing about it is that it is a skill anyone can develop and improve upon. That’s where a resilience speaker or resilience coach comes in. These are certified professionals who can help businesses and individuals develop resilience. A resilience coach in particular can prove very beneficial for professionals such as high-level executives, middle managers, team leaders, as well as employees across all levels of the organisation’ entrepreneurs too. He/she can also work with individuals at a personal level (similar to a personal development coach) to help them overcome adversity and work through setbacks. Whether you’re looking for a personal development coach, change management speaker or business speaker or coach to help with your organisation’s resilience planning, it is best to look at their experience and track record in the field first because you want someone who will have the most impact as this is not something you want to gamble with.

What are the characteristics of resilience?

Resilient individuals and organisations tend to be more optimistic (albeit realistic at the same time) about their future outlook, despite how grim the present circumstances seem to be. They are action-oriented and place more emphasis on solutions as opposed to wallowing in misfortune. Resilient individuals and companies have a survivor mentality and are more adaptable to change. Resilient leadership and people find it easier to rebound after a crisis because they have a strong locus of control. In the case of businesses, resilience makes it possible to flourish when they encounter headwinds because resilience planning (which includes good risk management) makes them better placed to handle challenges and the impacts of disruption.

Why do we need resilience?

In a world riddled with challenges and uncertainty, resilience has become an essential skill for individuals and organisations to have in their toolkit. Having a resilient character or instilling a resilient culture in an organisation can help individuals and businesses to effectively deal with challenges by providing them with the emotional strength and framework to bounce back respectively. However, the benefits of resilience extend beyond mere survival. What resilience also does is give individuals and organisations back control, allowing them to find opportunities where none (or few) seem to exist.

What is resilience in a team?

A resilient team possesses the necessary skills to ride challenges without letting them get in the way of work or becoming disillusioned, whether it’s everyday work challenges or bigger changes happening within the company or industry as a whole. A resilient team is flexible and able to adapt to change and disruption in the workplace and industry at large, and enjoys more success than teams that do not work on cultivating resilience. Members of a resilient team are big on matters collaboration and communication, and they know how to ask for help when needed. Team members have normalised a culture of trust and they have a shared sense of purpose that feeds their resilience, which in turn fuels the success and prosperity of the company.

How do you build resilient teams?

Resilience has become an important characteristic of organisational teams. Not only does it ensure groups are more adaptive to change and setbacks, but resilience fosters an innovative team culture that ensures your company thrives even in the midst of disruption or difficult moments. Building resilient teams may involve a rethink of the entrenched practices that could be getting in the way of growth and success. Oftentimes, an external influence may be best placed to help you make a successful shift. A savvy and experienced resilience speaker or coach can help your teams instil a winning culture that allows them to regroup after setbacks or roadblocks instead of becoming disheartened. He/she can help promote a healthy work environment that is sustainably productive and ensures the best talent stays put.
