Resilience gives you the courage to go to the difficult place when you need to.Becoming Confidently Resilient w/Audrey Tang
How can you become confidently resilient?
You need to think about the people you’re supporting
What’s right for them, what makes them feel better, what makes them better able to give the performance they want to give?
One of the things that I’ve learned through my work is that people don’t go into situations wanting to do a bad job. They go in wanting to succeed, wanting to have the opportunity to be praised, wanting to have the opportunity to do well.
The Escape Game really allows people to reflect on their behaviours, and hopefully make changes.
If nothing else, they gain the self-awareness of not only what that behaviour may lead to the consequences, and how that behaviour is perceived by other people.
Escape games are great because they reveal authentic and real behaviors, because under pressure, you suddenly become yourself.Becoming Confidently Resilient w/Audrey Tang
Using the FIRO-B® Test
Relationships are as important to us as food and water to survival.
However, we all need different amounts of it.
So on the one hand, you’ve got people who want loads and loads of people around them all the time, and that’s how they perform at their best. And there’s others who just want one or two people.
The FIRO-B® Test looks at three particular dimensions, affection, inclusion, and control or leadership.
The best thing about the FIRO-B® Test, which I think is really clever, is you look at not just how much you want it, but how much you display it as well,
It allows people that little bit of extra insight.
So everything I do is largely about saying to people, let’s have a look at your behaviours in a safe space and start from there.
