Resilience is…
Definition of Resilience
In engineering… relates to how a structure displays resistance to stress and
bounces back towards re-equilibrium
In ecology… refers to how eco-systems adapt to external or internal shocks
In psychology… involves an adaptive interpretation of impact-minimizing
anticipatory, or reactionary, practices
Places People Environments Regions
What resilience looks like (Martin, 2012)
Resistance: Degree of sensitivity or depth of reaction
Recovery: Speed and degree
Re-orientation: Re-alignment and adaptation
Renewal: Towards a growth trajectory
The 4 Rs
Adaptation and adaptability (Pike et al. 2010)
Adaptation – A movement towards a pre-conceived path in the short run, characterised by
strong and tight couplings between social agents in place.
Adaptability – A dynamic capacity to effect and unfold multiple evolutionary trajectories,
through loose and weak couplings between social agents in place, that enhance the overall
responsiveness of the system to unforeseen changes

Editor's Notes

  1. Welcome to Bounce: How to harness your resilience in a changing world. This presentation is released under the Creative Commons Share-Alike-By-Attribution. Feel free to share this with your colleagues, friends and family. And have fun! All we ask is that you attribute this presentation to Lauren L’ecaros and Portia Tung.
  2. If you were a superhero, who would you be be and why? Alternatively, if you had a super power what would it be and why? Form groups of 3 and introduce yourself by sharing your name and answer.
  3. Usain Bolt does it. Oprah does it. What’s your favourite power pose? Strike your pose for 2 minutes! Amy Cuddy is a social psychologist famous for making power poses something we all do. According to Amy’s research, adopting a power pose for 2 minutes increases testosterone and reduces cortisol, resulting in improved individual performance. The power pose is proven to improve abstract thinking as well as executive function (aka decision making) and can even help when dealing with physical pain. Amy asks us to listen to our body because of the inter-relationship between our body, mind and behaviours. “Fake it until we become it”, says Amy. We say, “Try it, you might like it!”
  4. Without a goal, it’s hard to score. Here’s the goal and success criteria of the session (defined as a user story). We’ll be asking you to test each criteria by a show of hands at the end of the session.
  5. What does resilience mean to you? Write down the ideas that come to mind. Share some of your ideas with the entire group.
  6. Resilience has different meanings depending on the context, ranging from engineering, ecology and psychology. In essence, resilience describes the ability to bounce back from challenging events and move forward.
  7. There are 4 aspects to resilience: resistance, recovery, re-orientation and renewal. Let’s go through each one in turn.
  8. Resilience can also be viewed as a process in which adaptation and adaptability manifests. Adaptation means taking a fixed path and adjusting to it. Adaptability is the ability to find and create new paths to travel along.
  9. Identify 3 examples of resilience in your life, one per Post-It. In groups of 3, give a short summary of each example.
  10. Who’s Andrew Solomon? He’s a Ted speaker who tells a story in which he didn’t turn out as his parents had hoped. Watch the Ted talk to find out what happened next.
  11. There are many types of resilience, ranging from the everyday to the more specific such as relationship or economic. Sort your examples by types of resilience and label each Post-It with its type. Then arrange the 3 Post-Its in a timeline, from the least recent to the most recent. Now take a metaphorical step back, squint a little and look at your timeline of events. What do you notice? Share your findings in the same groups of 3.
  12. Here are a few ways of how we’ve learned to increase our resilience. Superhero buddies: Identify people who are there for you when you need help, support or a shoulder to cry on Self-congratulation: Praise yourself for your efforts, in small things and large Hit rock bottom quickly: Identify the worst thing that could happen (dive for bottom) then start focusing on how to get back to the surface (swim towards the sun) Self-assessment: Imagine you’re your manager and give yourself an appraisal. What are your achievements to date? What can you do better? Physical exercise: Get your body moving. Some exercise is better than no exercise. A short 5 or 10 minute walk counts as exercise!
  13. During our search to increase our resilience, we noticed 4 key factors common in helping us tackle our challenges. We call it the HOPE model. H is for Help – We can benefit from asking for help as much as giving it O Is for Openness – Being present and daring to be vulnerable with the things we share with others P is for Perseverance – Never give up. If at first you don’t succeed, try something different E is for Ease – Strive to perform at your best
  14. Come up with a challenge you’re currently facing. Write this down on a sheet of paper. Next to the challenge, write out the letters H, O, P, E. Identify at least one personal action associated with each letter of the HOPE acronym. Last, but not least, share your output with your group of 3.
  15. We’ve one more tip to share. One of the most effective ways to increase your resilience is through play. Just look at the number of types of resilience play addresses! Most important of all, remember, “Five minutes of play a day keep the doctor and priest away. Hooray!” says Portia the Playmaker.
  16. To summarise: We started by identifying examples of our personal resilience, followed by creating our personal resilience track record, what we call our personal resilience history. We then shared some tips from our personal experience on developing resilience. Next we identified actions for improving our resilience using the HOPE model. Last but by no means least, we highlighted the importance of play in terms of resilience.
  17. Here are some resources we’d recommend. We strongly recommend watching Amy Cuddy’s talk on the power pose. To better understand ourselves and those around us, we suggest you read John Gray’s book “Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus”.
  18. It’s time to do some acceptance testing! If you agree with the following criteria, raise your hand: - I understand what resilience is - I’m more aware of how resilient I am and have been - I’ve got at least 3 ideas to improve my resilience - I’ve had fun!
  19. Thanks to everyone for your enthusiasm and participation! Do stay in touch and share your resilience stories with us. Be bold, be brave, be HOPEful!
