Creating A Resilient Culture
The intense character of present-day change is having a substantial impact on the spirit, outlook and contributions of staff. Phrases and words like competition, limited resources, reorganize, restructure, and do more with less represent real demands on all those involved.
We need to be able to manage the emotional consequences of continuous transformation and change, anxiety and stress.
Many staff are identifying themselves as victims of these changes, and have consciously or unconsciously adjusted their attitudes, spirit and behaviours to attempt to survive. Too often this adjustment results in negative views, low morale and personal despair. This creates an unhealthy and de-energizing environment at the very time that demands are being placed on people to rise to the occasion.
