Tonight, #TChat-ers took to Twitter and made their voices heard loud and clear on #TChat Events, even if it was only through a 140 characters. The reason being is because our community, along with this week’s guest: Michael H. Ballard, a resiliency expert who specializes in developing and delivering workplace programs, know that building a culture of workplace resiliency is about adaptability and creating a model that allows it to flourish in. It’s not about finger pointing or being afraid to fail. It’s about getting back up when you get knocked down. What other way can we move forward if we don’t?
The #TChat discussion began by asking a simple question, what is a resilient workplace?

Michael brings up an interesting point about giving employees the training required to problem solve and create. Without the right kind of guidance and model for employees to apply their set of skills, then how does workplace resiliency ever get built?
A1. A resilient workplace is one that can quickly adapt its strategies and goals in order to remain successful. #tchat

Yes, a resilient workplace should be able to adapt quickly to its own strategies and goals. It has to create a model for resiliency.
A2. A resilient workplace needs to model trust and transparency. #TChat

It’s through this model that leaders and organizations can promote trust, transparency, and optimism that harness cohesive awesomeness around your workplace. Remember…

Resiliency has the resources (trust) and tools (transparency) to bridge leadership and employee engagement together.
