Case Study - Building a Resilient Culture

People today are experiencing extremely high levels of stress in the workplace. And organizations are trying to do more with less, further increasing employee workloads with no end in sight. In fact, leaders are discovering the impact of pushing themselves and their teams harder than ever: health and well-being suffer. As a leader, you need to learn how to ensure both high performance AND sustainable well-being for yourself and your people.

Keynote/ Workshop

This keynote or workshop draws upon

30 years of academic research and will help you understand the difference between pressure and stress. Filled with insights from Nick's latest book, Work without Stress: Building a resilient mindset for lasting success, you’ll discover that while pressure is inevitable, stress is something you create. With stress, you can learn to let it go.

This interactive workshop will help you build individual and organizational resilience for the long term. You’ll gain insight into your personal resilience profile and discover how to deal with pressure. 


As a participant, you will:​​​

  • Understand the difference between stress and pressure

  • Learn how stress is created and what resilient people do to avoid it

  • Understand how stress might be affecting them, via each attendee’s results on the Challenge of Change assessment, a measurement of eight dimensions of stress

  • Use their personal resilience profile to outline an approach to deal effectively with stress

  • Cascade the principles of reducing stress and increasing resilience to their teams

Cascading Resilience in 
Three Steps:

1) “Each One Teach One” (time required by each leader: three 30-minute team sessions)

  • Each month for three consecutive months, leaders receive a seven minute video with facilitation questions on key topics from the Resilience Workshop that are relevant to their teams

  • Leaders play the video to their teams and facilitate a discussion based on three questions: How does this content apply to you? Apply to us as a team? How could we implement this as a group?

  • Benefit:  this is a simple process to use; it develops direct reports by creating a common language, mindset, and approach to apply the resilience tools deeper and broader in the organization

​2) Accountability and Best Practice Call (time required– one hour)

  • 60 days after Step 1 “Each One, Teach One” is implemented, Nick partners with HR to run a one hour accountability and best practice call for the leaders

  • Each person answers three questions (approximately five minutes per question)

    • What actions have I taken?

    • What happened as a result?

    • What have I learned that I will take forward?

  • Benefit: this step increases personal motivation to take action; create a sense of progress; helps people learn best practices from their peers

3) Measure Results

  • 10-12 months after Step 2 is completed, leaders retake the Challenge of Change assessment​

  • Benefit: the re-test provides a quick way to gauge personal progress and motivates people and the organization to make changes
