The stand-up animal is a symbol of resilience

Depending on how the "button" of the stand-up animal is pressed, it changes its posture.  It is flexible and constantly takes up a new position. Depending on how the button is pressed, it either hangs its head or is forced into its knees. Thanks to the concealed spring, the stand-up animal always straightens up again.


It is similar in our daily work and in our lives: we usually manage to cope very well with the different requirements, react flexibly and find our way back to a powerful position. But there are also times when the "push of a button" lasts longer because of the many challenges, when the spring doesn't work quite as quickly and when it's not easy to straighten up again.


Resilient people can deal with stress in such a way that they find their inner balance again after the phases of tension and recover more quickly from crises. 

Resilience - what for?

Resilience, the inner resistance or the immune system of the psyche, is today an essential key competence and a valuable companion. Our goal is to promote resilient behaviour in dealing with demanding situations and to support companies and organisations in building a resilient organisational culture.


Satisfaction in the work environment

Today's working world is characterised by constant efficiency improvements, constant change and a lack of stability. In order to survive well and stay healthy as an organisation in the long term, innovation and creativity are just as important as effective and efficient implementation. In resilient companies, employees are capable of implementing the principle of "as well as good":


  • External control and personal responsibility

  • Change competence and stability

  • Effectiveness requirements and composure


Today's balancing act

At the individual level it is also important to maintain a balance between success in professional life and the shaping of private interests and obligations. Thanks to well-developed resilience, the ability to act is maintained even in times of constant change.

Resilience Factors                                       

Over time, research has identified factors that are decisive for resilient behaviour.


Resilient people
  • have access to their own creativity

  • accept their life situation

  • behave responsibly 

  • shape their future and are directors of their lives

  • be mindful of oneself

  • are network oriented and cultivate their relationships

  • act solution-oriented

  • are optimistic and know their strengths


The beauty of "resilience" is that the individual factors can be trained! That is why we have developed the Resilienzrad.  

Resilienz wheel: 

Only those who burn for something can burn out...

Resilience increases the ability to change, promotes personal responsibility, supports stress and also has a preventive character at the first signs of exhaustion. Especially in phases when there are too many different balls in the air and everything is pelting down on us, we tend to neglect our regeneration and run the risk of burning out.

Resilience can be trained!

A resilient person masters demanding working and living conditions more confidently.


We at the Resilience Centre Switzerland make a significant contribution to this.
