Resilience and Recruitment Consultancy Services

Resilience is one of the most important factors which correlates with good emotional intelligence and crucially, performance. There are few jobs that do not require this attribute.

Our unique service identify those individuals with resilience, and those that need to develop this all important skill.

We recently advised Skills for Care & Development of methods they could use to recruit those with resilience to the social care workforce nationally, the attribute being recognised as one of the most important factors to determine a suitability for employment in the social care sector.

Low resilience leads to:

  • low morale, learning capacity, performance and retention issues
  • unhelpful, even damaging behaviours
  • depressive and anxiety related disorders

Making sure that you have a resilient workforce is the Number 1 factor that will help your organisation meet the challenges in a time requiring continual change, innovation and achievement.

The Resilience Blueprint

For those that need to build their resilience we have developed a series of simple steps, developed using an evidence based approach, that significantly combat feelings of helplessness and lack of control and are described in our “Resilience Blueprint”. This includes learning how to:

  • develop an optimistic, growth mindset
  • recognise the relationship between emotions and thoughts and our perception of events
  • resolve conflict with others
  • practice mindfulness to tackle anxiety, stress, exhaustion and depression
  • use visualisation to increase resilience
  • increase creativity, focus and persistence

Each of these techniques are proven to help individuals of all ages develop a more positive approach to life and take control when faced with adversity or challenge.

The Resilience Blueprint can be delivered through one to one coaching, or fun and practical workshops.

Probably the best training I have had in the 10 years I have been here!”. 

For organisations that have identified low resilience as an issue we can also:  

  • Audit policies, procedures and systems to measure the extent to which they contribute to reduced resilience
  • Produce thought provoking resources
  • Carry out a stress audit, examining sickness absence, employee views, performance issues
  • Develop a plan to address and remove key causes
  • Work with staff to give them the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to increase their resilience
  • Help senior management understand the action to take to increase resilience
