Resilience Summary

Resilience: Bounce Back from Whatever Life Throws at You by Jane Clarke

This brand new book takes a positive and dynamic approach to surviving whatever life throws at you, exploring the range of skills, attitudes and abilities you need to survive and thrive in difficult times, both personally and professionally. While some people are more naturally resilient than others, the book asserts that resilience is a quality that can be learnt and developed, whatever your stage in life or personal situation. Based on extensive new research, and backed-up with real-life case studies and examples of people who display resilient behaviour (including those who have turned adversity into advantage), the book shows how you too can bounce back from bad times, learning how to take back control, know when to press ahead or cut your losses, and see opportunity where others see threat. The book concludes with a 10-point plan to help you pull all the strands together, building resilience, a skill for life. Key contents include: * Understanding yourself and your personal 'Resilience Quotient' * Making judgements and taking decisions * Assessing risk and solving problems * Managing stress * Being true to yourself.

Resilience Reviews

Packed with practical advice to help you get through tough times --Octavius Black, MD, The Mind Gym Some people develop resilience through life; others can learn it with the tools in this clever, insightful and inspiring book. Whatever way you come to it I now realise resilience is an under recognised and powerful quality that has played a large part in my success and life. -- Mary Portas, from BBC series Mary Queen of Shops Evening Standard Resilience - the capacity of people to cope with stress and catastrophe - is the hottest new topic in psychology, medicine and social sciences... Resilience is a critical skill. In a stressful, fast-changing world it can even help inoculate against mental illness while boosting achievement levels and productivity... the good news is we can develop our natural powers of resilience at any age --Evening Standard * Octavius Black, MD, The Mind Gym *

Having completed her MBA, she then moved into the area of organisational culture and change and joined Nicholson McBride in 1993. Managing Nicholson McBride's contribution to the largest corporate recovery ever achieved. Jane was involved in helping to effect a dramatic shift in organisational culture, followed by a significant programme of leadership development. Helping partners in professional services firms and MDs in investment banking to develop more productive relationships with their clients and ultimately become trusted advisors to them. Helping leaders to develop the mindset, confidence and competence to achieve their individual potential and that of the businesses they manage; in particular, pioneering the development of Leadership 21, an intensive development process for high-flyers. As well as publishing a book on `office politics', Jane was also a columnist for The Independent newspaper on the same subject and has since worked with many organisations to help people understand the politics - and how to handle them constructively. About John John started his career in Psychology, teaching at Oxford University. His career as an Advisor began in the UK Cabinet Office in 1973, when he was asked to devise some means of improving the quality of Cabinet Ministers' decision-making. Later projects have tended to be less ambitious. Since founding Nicholson McBride in 1988, John has helped more than 250 organisations, in both the public and private sectors, to change the way in which they organise themselves and manage their people. The challenges John has particularly enjoyed have been around the breadth of work and the range of clients he has been involved with.

John has experience of working in more than a third of the FTSE Top 100 companies. A challenge John particularly enjoys is offering advice to others who spend their life advising.
