Only those who dare to fail big can ever achieve great things.

Why is resilience important?

From 2022 to 2023, the number of days absent due to mental stress increased by 85%. And according to a Gallup report from 2021, 70% of employees are suffering from the first symptoms of burnout. This dynamic threatens the company’s success and can lead to long-term cutbacks.

It has been proven that these figures can be drastically reduced by specifically promoting the resilience of employees and the company.

Our (working) world is more challenging than ever. Whether privately, professionally or socially – people have more stress, more worries and more fears. Companies are suffering from ever greater and, above all, longer periods of absence from work. A vicious circle: poorly staffed teams lead to additional workloads for those doing the work. It is more important than ever to tackle and rethink the issue of resilience.

We are happy to help.

Personal resilience

Personal resilience is the ability to survive difficult life situations without lasting impairment and to leave them behind.

In concrete terms, this means that resilient people always manage to “arrive at themselves”, are in touch with their own personal needs, fulfill them and take care to maintain their own boundaries

However, resilient people are not only particularly well positioned in one area of their lives, they have usually developed many areas of self-management well for themselves.

There are many ways to increase personal resilience.
At berliner team, we focus on individual coaching sessions organized by the employer as well as open seminars as an opportunity for further education and training.

Resilience in the company

Resilient companies recognize risks early on, are very agile and are able to act quickly in crisis situations. They have an open error culture, robust supply chains and transparent information flows.

Some factors that promote resilience are “hard factors”, such as operational redundancies. However, most of these are soft factors anchored in the corporate culture.

At the end of the day, the “magic formula” is quite simple and complex at the same time: if you offer your employees the opportunity to fully develop as a person, to be seen and encouraged to get to know themselves as individuals and to be allowed to fulfill their own needs and maintain boundaries, as well as to welcome failure, you will get healthy and happy employees who recognize risks early on and quickly find good solutions for the company in a collaborative manner.

In concrete terms, this means Cultural transformation >>at company level and resilience training for employees and team development with a focus on resilience for the whole team.
