Leaders and their people are all experiencing change and disruption more frequently and more intensely than ever before. Organizational change is no longer contained to one-off events; leaders need resilience to manage on-going change and performance pressures. At the individual level, dealing with change, volatility and unexpected challenges is contributing to increased burnout, lower engagement and rising levels of stress. Organizations feel the impact of disruption and constant change through increased turnover, absenteeism and presenteeism.

Most programs on resilience focus solely on the individual and provide interventions to help you manage your well- being – but this is just one ‘input’ to resilience. You also need strategies to deal with change and unexpected challenges, and the resources to support your people. This Learning Sprint will help you do both.

The YSC approach looks at individual resources and goes a step further by outlining what you can practically do as a leader to foster more resilience in your teams. People are different, so their approach to building resilience varies. You will identify the strategies and habits that are going to work best for you personally.
