The pandemic has challenged the resilience of people, leaders and businesses against very difficult circumstances. How we cope with stress, setbacks, uncertainty and taking risks impacts our wellbeing, productivity and ability to move forward.
In your career, building resilience can be the difference in how you manage risk, particularly when things are not going well. Weighing up the pros and cons of taking career risks with your mentor can help you make important decisions in a more objective way.
This month’s Activity is focused on your risk profile and building resilience. Reflect on what has helped you manage setbacks in the past. Consider what risks may be ahead. Identify what you can do to feel more resilient.
