When Helen from Literally PR emailed inviting us on to the blog tour, we will be honest, we were sceptical about The Really Resilient Guide. We didn’t think it would be any good as lots of this type of book are full of buzzwords and aren’t really that much help.
Our copy arrived at a really opportune time. As our full-time day jobs had gone slightly crazy, promotions, staffing issues etc. All had caused us to neglect TBH and other commitments as we just couldn’t be bothered as we were just so tired.
So we sat down with a cup of tea and we began to read The Really Resilient Guide, and wow. It was a revelation. Andry Anastasis McFarlane knows her stuff and she makes it really easy for you to know and understand it. With clear explanations and examples, you can follow to stop you stressing out and work, feel less overwhelmed so you can feel calm and productive in your work.
This section below which deals with working with others in teams was one of the areas that made us really pay attention to what we were reading and realise that the book was going to help us in our own work situation.
“5: Let’s All Work Together
- Feeling that you have run out of steam, because you’ve been doing all the thinking and carrying out all the actions?
- Finding your solo resilience-building actions are not having the impact that you hoped for?
- Facing a larger challenge, that might benefit from an inspired and collaborative group tackling it together?
- Simply feeling like you’d like to be more of a team player?
If this sounds like you, it might be beneficial to build your personal resilience with peers, or in a group. So far in this book we have focused a great deal on techniques that you can use personally to build your resilience. That’s great in many ways: it strengthens your emotional intelligence, can really develop your inner resilience and gives you a strong sense of independence. But sometimes, if you are tired of behaving like a superhero, using up your reserves of energy, risking burnout, or just needing to take part in more teamwork, you can explore building resilience with people and with a network, rather than alone.“
This book has helped us a lot over the past few weeks. We’ve even passed it on to colleagues. It’s one that if your feeling nervous about having to go back to the office after working from home. Or facing situations at work that you are unsure how to handle or are overwhelming you, then The Really Resilient Guide is a book you need to read.
