- Building resilience
Use personality insights to build individual and organisational resilience, and help people manage workplace stress
Workplace stress can be something of an elephant in the room. Whilst its negative effects can be destructive, sweeping it under the carpet is all too common. But with the right approach to stress management, organisations can create a resilient work environment and employees can learn to maximise productivity.
The negative consequences of stress have been shown to decrease where people are supported by managers who understand them, and where people have control and autonomy over their workload. Rather than trying to eliminate stress from the workplace entirely, personality information can be used to discover individual optimal levels, and to help managers provide the right kind of support to build resilience.
- Increased performance, better results
- Reduced distress and conflict, improved morale
- More effective use of time and resources
- Practical measures to remain resilient, even under pressure.
- MBTI® Step I and the MBTI Stress Management Report can be used to help individuals understand and manage their own stress process.
- In the Grip is ideal for managers to understand not only how to manage their own stress, but also how to recognise it in others and build resilience in their team.
Many of the coaches have now put their MBTI knowledge into everyday practice, with conversations about how they are getting on in the environment and reacting to certain stressors. The training has been useful in helping recommend appropriate activities to re-energise, or to identify those things that take more effort and why, to both coaches and players in the environment.
