They say that that there is nothing as resilient in nature as the human spirit. Ups and downs are part of life. Falling is natural, but it is getting up what counts.
Career wise too, we go through various phases. Some rising and some downhill. It is in the downhill phase that the employees need help and support. So, here are some pointers on how to build your business’ resilience while supporting your employees:-
Lead by example- You are the boss. The employees consider you the leader and it’s obvious that they are going to follow you. So, it’s important that you create the right example in front of them. Stay strong and stand tall. If you are strong, then your employees will follow suit and this will develop resilient quotient amongst your employees.
Try and build employee unity-Unity is strength. Employees should work in cohesion. This way if one employee is lagging behind, then the other one can help out. This will uplift the resilient quotient of the employees and increase the efficiency of the company.
Support your employees– This is vital. Do lend that helping hand to your employees. In case the employee is facing some dilemma and going through a low phase, your help and support will uplift their morale. This will increase their buoyancy and make them strive in difficult situations.
Encourage– Encouragement is important. Praise the employees for good performance. This will not only boost their morale, but uplift their drive to perform better.
Communication- Do build up a good rapport with your employees. Good communication goes a long way. Communicate and build personal relationship with them. Say healing words. In case the employees are facing some dilemma in life, do empathise with them. This will build their resilience and increase their capacity to bounce back.
As we can see that resilience is an important virtue. As they say, our greatest glory is not in never falling, but getting up every time we do. A little support is all the employees need to build up their resilience quotient.
