The Resilience Institute surveyed over 20,000 people to understand what drives resilience in individuals and groups across the world. 11 key factors were identified. These range from the obvious – focus, purpose, optimism, assertiveness and bounce – to the less expected – sleep quality, vitality, presence, decisiveness, values alignment and fulfilment.
The research was published here.
A resilient person breaks down life’s challenges into achievable tasks, prepares biology and environment, then works with focus and determination. Things go wrong for them as for any of us, but they rely on their ability to bounce, recalibrate and recover. They engage with their whole being: physical, emotional and cognitive, dynamically playing to their strengths and working to mitigate risk areas.
Resilience Mastery examines each of the 11 key factors, weaving together inspiring stories from people who have achieved success in their fields.
