As the impact of the Coronavirus deepens, societies will need to be more resilient.
Conventional theorems, however, have meant that for the most part, individuals tend to interpret resilience as a need to protect themselves against risk rather than thinking about it as a consequence of their mindset and, therefore, their resourcefulness as a person.
In other words, the more committed and resourceful we are, the more resilient we will naturally be. Whereas, the more concerned we are about the future, the more likely we are to capitulate.
It’s important to note that the idea of being resilient isn’t about burying our heads in the sand or trying to maintain a positive outlook when things are going awry. It’s about acknowledging the fact that we have the ability to manage our way through a crisis.
The more you focus on what you can do to help your company (and whānau) through it, the more useful you will be. However, if you become consumed by the situation, the more you will question your relevance as a person thereby reducing your capacity (resilience) to cope.
