Are you thriving or surviving in the workplace?

Most employees go through the motions to survive in the workplace, while others go beyond surviving and thrive.

How do you develop resilience so that you can flourish in the world of work?

Eusebius McKaiser engages business coach Dawn Klatzko about resilience in the workplace.

Business has its own resilience requirements. If you look at this very volatile environment that we are in, businesses are having to change on the run. They are in a survival mode of their own.

Dawn Klatzko, Business and executive coach

So you don't really expect to have a sympathetic ear when you as the individual are saying it's really tough.

Dawn Klatzko, Business and executive coach

A lot of people I have engaged with are saying they don't know how to cope. I have additional responsibility, I am too afraid to speak up, I might lose my job. How do I manage?

Dawn Klatzko, Business and executive coach

Too many people have a fear of admitting that there might be a deficiency so they will never admit and they wait too long before they get the help and the damage is already quite intense.

Dawn Klatzko, Business and executive coach

Klatzko explains the dimensions you need to have in your possession to become resilient.

  1. Living authentically
  2. Finding your calling/purpose
  3. Building up a network
  4. Mastering stress
  5. Focus on your own excellence
