The first few weeks of the summer holidays always takes me by surprise.

As it sinks in, I notice a reduction in the usual rush hour traffic and daily phone calls, and the endless emails are reduced to a trickle.

This change of pace should be a welcome change from the chaos leading up to the summer break.

However, the slow down of tempo can be a cause of stress for some.  Projects grind to a halt, “out of office” replies keep you waiting 2 weeks for a response, and those who like a busy diary, find the sudden lack of activity unnerving.

But this provides valuable time to recharge our inner battery and build resilience so we can cope and perform to our maximum when the activity starts over again in September.  Of course, it’s easier said than done.

There are 4 primary Domains of Resilience which you can focus on to ensure you are prepared to return in the autumn with renewed vigor and energy.

The 4 domains have been defined as: -

Mental Resilience– Your attention span and ability to sustain focus.  Being able to think rationally and logically

Physical Resilience – Your physical fitness.  Taking care of your nutrition.  Allowing time for rest and recovery

Emotional Resilience - Having a positive outlook.  The ability to self-regulate emotions. Being calm and focused

Spiritual Resilience – Having commitment to your own values.  The ability to show empathy and tolerance of others’ beliefs.

Some people are naturally more resilient in one domain than in another. 

 

Take time over the next few weeks to assess your own personal resilience. Which domain has the biggest drain on your inner resources and needs attention?

"To date I've facilitated 24 TetraMap sessions since being accredited, each session bringing different learning and understanding every time.  I've witnessed some  momentous 'lightbulb' moments for some people, which makes my day.  The biggest win for me with TetraMap is that it's just so applicable in the workplace, delegates remember their preference, and are still having discussion about it 6 months down the line."

- Ally Wightman
Senior Leadership Development Consultant, Telefonica UK

"I always choose TetraMap as the model of behaviour because the feedback from delegates consistently reflects a positive experience and extremely high application back in the 'real world'.  It's reassuring to be approached by delegates from years gone by to be told how the experience has changed their lives for the better, both inside and outside of work."

Training Consultant

"It's a phenomenally powerful tool for managers to communicate more effectively with their team."

- Ben Long
Trainer, BSkyB

"We are delighted with the results which speak for themselves.  TetraMap is the most memorable take away from the Ignite programme.  We have used the model in our management training to help improve coaching skills, communication skills and how to recognise how the different elements behave under stress.  This has been invaluable in helping our managers develop their teams more effectively."

- Tessa Roff
Training Manager, Nationwide Building Society

TetraMap is probably one of the most power and simple tools I have come across to get people, teams and communities working together constructively and with massive speed and accuracy.
