Why Better Workplace Wellbeing Works for Everyone

Good all round health and wellbeing is good for business. If your people are more resilient they’re more productive, more effective, more engaged, and less stressed.

How can resilience support your goals to reduce stress and enhance wellbeing?

Resilience is a buffer to stress

With high resilience, you are able to successfully absorb the stress from stressors with less negative impact, leading to an improved ability to function and better overall wellbeing. 

Resilience creates surplus

Investing in resilience means you extend your capacity, giving you more energy and flow, unlocking your ability to anticipate, act proactively and innovate.

Resilience releases capacity

When you operate at the highest levels of resilience, you remain adaptable, resourceful, and energised no matter what’s going on. By investing in resilience and wellbeing, you release the capacity to adapt, preventing any hijack due to stress.

Resilience gives you perspective

Rather than being caught in ‘do-do-do’, resilience enhances your perspective. That in turn allows you to make better decisions, whilst it also boosts your health and wellbeing. Become grounded in the present, switch off the auto-pilot, and shift towards deep acceptance rather than constant striving.

Choose a resilience journey that fits what you need.



Here’s how we supported Angus Council in resilience as staff struggled with overwhelm due to high levels of complexity and change.

See it

Initially, we helped managers at Angus Council to see their own resilience using our tools and techniques.

  • Participants uncovered the truth of what resilience is and why it matters via the Resilience Toolkit. This “has been a useful learning tool and helped raise my own self-awareness”
  • An earlier version of the Resilience Dynamic® Questionnaire enabled individuals to see their own resilience level.
  • Managers identified the key enablers and barriers to their resilience through their personalised report and debrief with a coach.

Understand it

Individuals at Angus Council increased their understanding of resilience by delving deeper into our tools while coaching support was added into the mix.

  • Participants felt that the Resilience Toolkit aided them in supporting their own personal wellbeing and improving their performance, providing “manageable chunks of information”.
  • Managers used their learning to develop a Resilience Action Plan, gaining a sense of how they could boost their resilience simply day to day and appreciating that they were “able to go at my own pace”.
  • Accredited Resilience Dynamic practitioners provided coaching support for managers, accelerating their understanding of how to better support their teams.

Optimise it

Angus Council continued their efforts to support their staff in resilience and wellbeing after the resilience programmes were completed.

  • By investing in the Resilience Accreditation Programme, Angus Council built an in-house resilience capability to support staff in an ongoing way with 30+ Resilience Dynamic® Questionnaires and debriefs being completed since the programme.
  • 80% felt their adaptability to change was positively impacted and managers began to model resilience at work through behavioural changes, enabling their teams to do the same.
  • 78% felt more confident that they could support their resilience better as a result of the Toolkit, and conversations around resilience and wellbeing became embedded in the organisation through frequent discussion in staff meetings.

Do you See the Signs of Stress in Your Workforce?

High rates of sick leave

Stress can have a significant impact on your health and wellbeing at the lower end of the Resilience Dynamic®. Investing in resilience acts as a buffer to stress, as you experience less of the negative impacts of stress with high resilience.


When you feel overwhelmed with too much to do, or dread taking something on because you fear it or know it is going to be difficult, you tend to put it off. Resilience enables you to tackle things head-on, without fear of failure.

Short-Term Focus

Stress leads you to focus on what is right in front of you. Resilience enables you to mitigate stress by giving you the space to look beyond the short-term and smooth out bumps in the road before they become bigger problems. 

Wellbeing FAQs

How are resilience and wellbeing connected?

Resilience and wellbeing are directly related. Resilience acts as a buffer to stress, preventing you from being hijacked by the negative stress reaction which can wreak havoc with your overall health and wellbeing. Conversely, investing in your wellbeing will boost your resilience.

How can I tell if my team's wellbeing is suffering when we are all working from home?

When working remotely, watch out for the indirect signs of stress such as procrastination and short-term focus. Others include a lack of empathy. Your people may be saying ‘yes’ but not show results. Energy levels may be lacking, and communication begins to break down. All of this means you need to invest in your team’s resilience and wellbeing!

What Resilience Dynamic solution is best suited to improving wellbeing?

All of our resilience solutions will enable wellbeing. If you are considering wellbeing across your full workforce, consider the Dashboard Enterprise solution. It includes real-time data on key resilience and wellbeing measures (such as stress, sleep, contentedness and others), thus enabling individuals and teams to really get a hold of how they are operating and the opportunities to optimise their wellbeing.
