I recently completed my certification in the Resilience at Work (R@W) Toolkit.Mary Crowley
Mary Crowley (middle) with Kathryn McEwen, Organizational Psychologist Australia (who developed the Resilience at Work Toolkit for Individuals, Leaders and Teams) and Dr Catherin Carr, Executive and Team Coach Canada.
The R@W Toolkit is a complementary suite of measures that recognizes the inter-relatedness of employee, leader and team behavior at work.
The measures can be used independently or together, dependent on the circumstances.
R@W Individual: A measure based on the Sustain 7 Model that assesses individual employee resilience.
R@W Team: A measure that assesses the group practices that promote team resilience. This builds on the R@W Individual Scale and can be used when there is an opportunity to work with the whole team.
R@W Leader: A measure that assesses the leader behaviours that support and foster resilience in employees and teams. This can be used as a stand-alone measure in coaching and leadership development or together with the other scales.
Working With Resilience was established in 2010 and is an international consortium of practitioners and academics combining their skills to advance the understanding of what resilience actually means in relation to our working lives.
Working with Resilience focuses on:
- Understanding what creates sustainable work practices and resilience in challenging work environments and occupations
- Developing validated tools that measure resilience within the employment context
- Providing strategies to build the resilience of employees, teams and leaders in a way that creates both optimal performance and personal well being.
