Resilience Outcome Based Team Building Activities
Resiliency is the ability to endure high levels of change while maintaining a high level of performance. Rather than an absolute characteristic, resilience is a combination of character traits in people. Resilient people tend to see more opportunities than non-resilient people. A Resilient team tends to grow stronger from the experience when they are confronted with the ambiguity, anxiety and loss of control that accompanies change. A team that is not resilient will tend to feel depleted from all the emotions that come with change. Resilient team members are able to make quicker and more effective adaptation to change. They understand that the future contains shifting variables, and are willing to remain loyal during periods of disruption. The individual members of your team may shift between sides of the resilience continuum, depending on the nature of the change experienced.
The team building exercises under the Resilience Outcome theme are selected to help achieve the specific objective of resilience. Your facilitator will select the appropriate exercises from this list to match the venue and team on the day.
