  • Your Performance
  • Your Mental Health
  • Your Job Satisfaction
  • Your Physical Health
  • Your Staff
  • Your Company’s Success

The Manager’s Role in Resilience

Management matters, but leadership matters more. Managers bear a great responsibility to coordinate actions across organisations to ultimately help the business achieve its strategic goals.


The more we learn about the psychology of management, the more we realise the crucial power managers can have on the wellness of staff. Education and training are necessary to build an optimal work environment where people can thrive, stay motivated and give their best.


This is why resilience is a core leadership skill that all managers must invest in.
