The Resilience Dividend

The Resilience Dividend | Knowledge Broker | Scoop.it

Building resilience creates two aspects of benefits: it enables individuals, communities, and organizations to better withstand a disruption more effectively, and it enables them to improve their current systems and situations.


Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

The resilience dividend not only enables people and communities to rebound faster from disasters or deal with stresses; it spurs economic development, job creation, environmental sustainability, and social cohesion. It brings benefit to people, organizations, and communities when things are going right as well as when they go wrong.

Resiliency is a competency that isn't new per say however in our testing times we, as leaders, are called upon to remain agile, nimble and resilient in the face of tsunami changes.  I really liked this resource for the great research references it provides including the infographic.  Thanks for sharing it @DavidHain, and for caring about developing others, you're a Giant in the LeadWithGiants community on G+.

Written from a teacher-student perspective, but equally applicable to work settings too!

Houshi

Houshi Ryokan was founded around 1,300 years ago and it has always been managed by the same family since then. 
It is the oldest still running family business in the world.


This ryokan (a traditional japanese style hotel) was built over a natural hot spring in Awazu in central Japan in the year 718. Until 2011, it held the record for being the oldest hotel in the world. 



Houshi Ryokan has been visited by the Japanese Imperial Family and countless great artists over the centuries. Its buildings were destroyed by natural disasters many times, but the family has always rebuilt. The garden as well as some parts of the hotel are over 400 years old.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

Owned by the same family for 1,300 years, the Japanese inn Houshi Ryokan is a marvel of tradition and resilience.
