New technologies, including internet, globalization, new consumer society, the exaltation of the aesthetics and his media bombardment, crises and other herbs; they are the new, new trend, new fashion, new style. And they are so installed between us that even a child knows that I’m talking about. All these new trends or new guidelines, are not more than new tax changes, and more than wish it or not, we have had to digest and learn to cope with. They are new modalities or circumstances of this modern era. These changes have been proposed new terms that has been established between us. The best-known is the Stress that has been discovered not long ago and today we all know what it is, broadly speaking, of a physiological response of the body before any dangerous situation, but there is a new term established for a few years, thirty and both, to be precise.
The term is: RESILIENCY. As always the first let’s see what it means. The word resilience has its origin in the latin language, the term resilio which means go back, returning from a jump, highlight, bounce. The term was adapted to social sciences to characterise those people who, despite being born and living in high risk situations, develop psychologically healthy and successful (Rutter, 1993). Michael Rutter (Sir Michael, since 1992) born in the Lebanon, the son of English parents, is Professor of child psychiatry of the Institute of Psychiatry of the University of London and was who introduced the concept of resilience by the 1970s.
The term not yet contained in the dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy, but is already widely known in the areas of the business. Employers, advisors and consultants know what it is and apply it regularly since the beginning of 2001 when came the famous crisis. Basically it’s the person who has the ability to overcome adversity or periods of emotional pain; a likeness of Phoenix. Perhaps not this clear even to the researchers, that makes that these persons, who they pass for desperate situations, they exceed them, and not only they manage to overcome, but that often, they escalated to a higher level. We can cite as examples, in the world of business, a bankruptcy that ends up leaving the person without assets, or losing a very well-paid job and in daily life we can add the death of loved ones, the loss of the couple, stories of children of drug addicts parents, knockers or alcoholics, and similar situations. Those who are dedicated to the formation of business leadership and consultancy claim having similarity and affinity with the success in business. They mention that the characteristics of these people in these times, like the present where approaching a new crisis that produces greater uncertainty, manage to maintain calm, expectantly, attentive and especially predisposed to change you’re predisposed to change?. If your answer is Yes surely this renowned crisis that both mention won’t be a problem to which you do not find solution. Finally: what I want to express is that beyond the crisis or not crisis, difficult times always manage to cross. No matter the black that will see the sky, always leave the Sun and the sky turns blue and clean. If you’re in times of bad and everything comes from singing, is just a matter of being patient, be attentive and PREDISPOSED to what is needed. Who knows if when you get a very difficult time which you have faced terminas proving you’re a real resilient.
