Resilience

Personal Work Resilience is the individual capacity to manage the everyday stress of work and remain healthy



Personal Work Resilience is the individual capacity to manage the everyday stress of work and remain healthy, rebound, learn from unexpected setbacks, and prepare for future challenges proactively (Kathryn McEwen).

Resilience at Work Scale (RAW-S) is targeted specifically to the workplace; it gives a simple and powerful guide both to areas of behaviors

which are successful as well as suboptimal behaviors to be modified and developed


Some description of resilience identifies it as a personality trait or genetic predisposition, but within the existential reality there is a view that resilience can also be conceptualized as a dynamic and interactive process.

Such an approach views it as a function of individual conscious interaction with their external environment

This suggests that rather than being a fixed quantity determined by relatively unchanging genetic factors, resilience is malleable and as such is capable of development. It suggests also the possibility of being teachable

The RAW Scale shows and defines the inter-play between personal characteristics and the environment which develop work behaviors and climates that promote and support resilience
