How resilient are you?

Posted by Charlie Johnston

How resilient are you? We are currently conducting a study into working professionals who compete in endurance events on top of holding down a full time career. This is a study which is interested in assessing how resilient amateur endurance athletes are when they compete in endurance events. It is also exploring if the participants are able to identify a pathway of resilience and determining if it is transferable into other performance environments, in particular work.

Many people see resilience as a trait but we are keen to see if it can be operationalised and transferable, as this could have a significant impact in how people deal with adverse situations in the workplace and their general well being and mindfulness. The report will be completed by late August but already the initial findings are already highlighting the benefit of exercise and how it can help people deal with challenges in the work environment.
