Surprises Are the New Normal; Resilience Is the New Skill

Surprises Are the New Normal; Resilience Is the New Skill | Occupational Psychology | Scoop.it
The difference between winners and losers is how they handle losing.

Ioannis Nikolaou's curator insight, July 21, 2013 4:33 AM

That's a key finding from my ongoing research on great companies and effective leaders: no one can completely avoid troubles and potential pitfalls are everywhere, so the real skill is the resilience to climb out of the hole and bounce back.

Volatile times bring disruptions, interruptions, and setbacks, even for the most successful among us. Companies at the top of the heap still have times when they are blindsided by a competing product and must play catch-up. Sports teams that win regularly are often behind during the game. Writers can face dozens of rejections before finding a publisher that puts them on the map. Some successful politicians get caught with their pants down (so to speak) and still go on to lead, although such self-inflicted wounds are harder to heal.

Resilience is the ability to recover from fumbles or outright mistakes and bounce back. But flexibility alone is not enough. You have to learn from your errors. Those with resilience build on the cornerstones of confidence — accountability (taking responsibility and showing remorse), collaboration (supporting others in reaching a common goal), and initiative (focusing on positive steps and improvements). As outlined in my book Confidence, these factors underpin the resilience of people, teams, and organizations that can stumble but resume winning.

Mark Keane's comment, August 4, 2013 6:22 AM
Ioannis, really good and useful insight. This perspective reminds me of the recent work by Taleb on Antifragility. A simple example would be perceptions of failure being destructive rather than constructive. Even in situations where failure is destructive, this is a catalyst for the construction of something else. The application of Taleb's concept in the world of business would mean that irrespective of financial conditions, the organisation continues to profit.

Work-Life Balance

Mark Keane's insight:

Marissa Mayer attracted a great deal of attention in relation to the Yahoo brand by taking a stance on home-working. This was an oversimplification of a much more complex debate on the merits of work-life balance. This blog post seeks to extend our understanding of the significance that work life balance as we navigate through multiple life contexts.

Christopher Yeh's curator insight, August 1, 2013 7:48 PM
The pace of workplace change is accelerating.21st century employee doesn’t believe in the office, doesn’t believe in the 9-to-5 grind, and doesn’t believe in stringent working conditions.Employers are expected to manage the diverse expectations of their multi-generational and multi-cultural workforce.Business is global, multiple generations show up for work, and consumer technologies have flooded the enterprise.
Mark Keane's comment, August 3, 2013 5:49 AM
Christopher you make a very good point on the expectations front. The best way to address these would come from knowing rather than unilateral guessing across an organisation. I would therefore recommend that organisations use tools to measure the psychological contract. In this way discrepancies between expectation and reality can be addressed.

Mark Keane's insight:

Scoop from the team that I have joined at Elite Professional Performance Ltd. While Sir Alex Ferguson had had a glittering and successful career, it has not all be plain sailing. Longevity and support of the Board were critical factors in his success, knowing the game was also very important. However, in the sense of identifying 'leadership potential' Sir Alex proves that getting everything right first time is not predictive of success.
