Resilience is a person’s ability to bounce back from and grow and thrive during challenge, change and adversity.  Resilience is built by attributes, behaviours and social supports that can be adopted and cultivated by anyone.

Reislience at work can be defined by our capacity to deal with the pressure and demands that arise.  Resilience is a set of skills that will serve you well in the world of work and they can be learnt.
