Help Build Your Team’s Resilience  (back)
In Heather Younger’s book The Art of Caring Leadership, she talks about building team resilience as one of the nine tenets of caring leaders. What does this look like in practice?

Inside and outside the workplace, obstacles and challenges are all around. We’ve also been working through the past 20 months of a pandemic. Caring Leaders focus on building resilience within those they lead the help them respond to inevitable adversity and bounce back to become stronger. This involves helping them reframe their current circumstances, learn from what is happening around them, and see the challenges as opportunities to grow and progress in their role in your unit.

This book was featured in CSN’s Summer Book Club series earlier this year. Now we will dive deeper into some of the topics, chapter by chapter. Join Rich Gassen from the Campus Supervisors Network for a small group discussion. Together, we will share stories from our work environments to show how building team resilience can result in better performance, higher job satisfaction, more employee retention, and other benefits.

A PDF of the chapter, as well as other resources from the book club, are available at https://uwmadison.box.com/s/oqelv2l7rr0ahcs6qt2vjmrsndufjirx. Read this chapter prior to our session.
