Hi all, I am going through professional coaching and one of the points identified is my personal resilience is not a strength. The recommendation is to use this strength less. I'm not comfortable with a weakness I haven't even tried to address and improve.
I agree I am not always resilient in work and I do dwell on criticism and tend to believe the worse of myself when criticised (unconstructively). I'm interested in writing myself a personal development plan on resilience with the objective of improving it. So far I've thought about changing out words. For example instead of criticism, thinking about what is said in more positive language e.g. as collaborative. (As one of the feedback podcasts says - and I'm paraphrasing heavily - why would you let some one drive off the road?)I'm thinking this is a first step towards changing my default response of being upset, disappointed in myself and in turn demotivated; then dwelling on it unnecessarily even when I've tried to make a change.
Does anyone have any thoughts about how to further develop my personal resilience development plan? I've looked for a podcast and other forum notes and I'm struggling to find material relevant to this. Although I did come across some interesting stories!
Thank You in advance for your support. Kind regards Helen
