Key Ideas

Defining resilience

Resilience is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or even significant sources of risk -  American Psychological Association.

It's the ability to bounce back when something goes wrong rather than crack under pressure.

Learning to be resilient

Resilience can be learned. It is like a muscle - you can’t exercise it unless you have a stressful event to react to.

So the more you get knocked down and get back up, the stronger and more fearless you become.

Develop an effective network

Having an effective network can help buffer you from potentially adverse career events. 

This means nurturing your existing network and establishing new connections over time. Remember to focus on building relationships, not contacts.

Build your personal brand

A personal brand is how you present yourself to the world. 

Be sure to clearly communicate who you are and what you do. Set short and long-term career goals for yourself and continuously reevaluate them over time.

Become a lifelong learner

Anything you can do to develop your expertise will help to increase your self-confidence and resiliency.

Continuous learning is a key component of career resilience. Stay up to date on the latest technology, take online courses and attend industry conferences. 

Setbacks are opportunities

The next time you experience a career setback, just think back to a time in your life when you were able to persevere. You are more resilient than you realize.

Think of J.K. Rowling for example. The first Harry Potter manuscript was rejected by 12 major publishers before being accepted.

Journaling to increase emotional stamina

Reflective journaling as a daily practice helps us improve our emotional stamina.

Writing down our experiences leads to new insights and a deeper understanding of our behaviour and actions. Writing down your failures and successes also helps us self-analyze our life in an objective, detached way. One can choose a pen and paper or digital format to write and make it a point to write when one experiences highs and lows in life.

Self-Compassion

We have to take care not to damage our self-esteem and our sense of self-worth by being judgemental about ourselves.

Embracing one’s imperfect moments with kindness and grace, makes us see the positive aspects of the situation and helps us learn from our mistakes. Meditation and certain thought exercises that steer our mind towards positivity, help us in being compassionate towards ourselves.
