Resilient daisy plant flowering on a sandy desert with no water.

Let’s talk a moment about resilience. Such a beautiful word. It rolls off the tongue like a brief musical motif. Resilience is the capacity of a ‘system’ to sustain itself in the face of adversity, uncertainty, and turbulence, modifying its structure (relations and ways of behaving) to adapt, to survive and, potentially, to thrive. When we speak of ‘systems’ in this context, I refer to the nested systems of our families, our teams at work, our organization/s, our communities, and our society at large. We cannot avoid difficulty and turbulence. What we can do is strive to build our own resilience as individuals and contribute to the resilience of our families, our teams, and our communities.
