Resilient teams, like individuals, need to know how to be flexible, agile, and rise to the occasion in tough times. Yet unlike individuals who can cultivate resilience on their own, teams require a leader at the helm who can orchestrate a culture that allows for it.

In good times, resilient teams can be counted on to consistently produce a fine product or service without burning out. In bad times, they stay motivated and work with a common purpose toward team goals while under considerable pressure. They are also optimistic that there’s light at the end of the tunnel, even if the tunnel is dark at the moment.

We’ll explore the components that make up a resilient team including psychological safety, clarity of roles and goals of individual contributors, the role of storytelling and how it can help or hinder a team’s resilience, and the qualities of a leader who runs a resilient team.

This overview of resilient teams will be both didactic but also highly experiential, based on the knowledge and experience present in the virtual room (real life case studies) among the group participants.

At the end of our time together, participants will come away with an understanding of the key dimensions of resilient teams and at least one next step for building one or supporting the continued growth of one.
