Building a Thriving Workforce in Challenging Times
The Resilient Spirit
The workshop begins with assessing the qualities and characteristics of resilient individuals and organizations.
Participants then chart their own empowering beliefs as well as commonly-held beliefs that may be sabotaging
the individual, team or organization.
The Situation Room
Using a four-quadrant grid, participants analyze a situation that is challenging to the individual, team or
organization. By plotting their circumstance on the grid, participants gain a deeper understanding of the nature
of the challenge they are facing, and discover which skills, strategies and perspectives to apply. The Situation
Room Grid is a useful assessment template that can be used over and over again, whenever participants,
teams or organizations face volatile, uncertain, complex or ambiguous challenges.
The Resilience Spiral ™
The Resilience Spiral is an interactive model that helps participants place this period of their work lives into a
larger perspective. By applying Resilience 2.0 findings to longer periods of their careers, they learn how to
elongate the upswings in work life cycles, as well as how to navigate through the downswings as quickly and
efficiently as possible.
Resilience 2.0 Card Deck ™
This deck of 52 playing cards is an engaging way to identify individual, team and organizational Resilience 2.0
strengths as well as areas ripe for further development. For individual, team or group use.
The Humor-Rich Environment Quiz ™
This inventory puts participants’ optimism muscles to good use. Participants learn how to advance their
capacity to motivate themselves and others through cultivating their sense of humor.
“The Art of Resilience” Book and Practices ™
This checklist and accompanying book provide suggested activities, disciplines, rituals and habits participants
can draw upon to help them continue to build a strong Resilience 2.0 practice. Each of the practices stands
alone. However, participants have the option of sampling illustrations and related practices from around the
world and across the millennium in their personal copy of the Random House book “The Art of Resilience.”
