Building Resilience

In Uncategorized on 13 November 2009 at 1:45 pm

Last week Robert Latham from Teacher Support Network answered questions on the Times Educational Supplement (TES) Forum. His response to a question about Ofsted inspections really works for me on many levels:

"Building resilience is an essential part of managing stress. If you want to build your resilience, work on developing these attitudes and behaviours:

  • Think of change as a challenging and normal part of life.
  • See setbacks and problems as temporary and solvable.
  • Believe that you will succeed if you keep working toward your goals.
  • Take action to solve problems that crop up.
  • Build strong relationships and keep commitments to family and friends.
  • Have a support system and ask for help.
  • Participate regularly in activities for relaxation and fun."


Learn more about developing your resiliency and why it is important by reading "Bounce!: Failure, Resiliency, and Confidence to achieve your next great success" by Barry J. Moltz.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to develop a robust inner confidence. I read this engaging book cover to cover in under a week making many notes in the margins that I regularly return to for inspiration.
