Some people are very good at managing stressful situations. We have all had a colleague who seems to thrive under pressure, perhaps this is you?

When someone seems continually unperturbed by the difficulties surrounding them, we sometimes say that they have a strong character. What we mean in psychological terms is that they are highly resilient and able to adapt to most situations.

The great thing about resilience is that it is something you can develop and improve over time. As next Wednesday the 10th of October is World Mental Health Day – it’s a good time for all of us to take a moment to think about how we can improve our mental health.

So how resilient are you? Take our Resilience Check to find out.

At BWC, we exist to support the health and wellbeing of the banking community. Learning to understand your resilience, recognising where it is weak and taking steps to build it will help you manage in stressful situations better.
