Resilience is an important skill for humans, teams, and organizations. Regardless of the change, resilience helps move from a state of confusion back to the status quo. A change process, however, requires persistence to move beyond status quo and the disruption of change.
Leaders must encourage their members to keep moving forward and persist through the discomfort. Teams need to take advantage of opportunities to do more so they can move on and into innovation—moving beyond what was asked. Persistence means teams and leaders are actively looking for ways to move past their usual routines and expectations every day.
