Resilience In The New World Of Work
Resiliency is ‘a person's capacity to respond to pressure and the demands of daily life’. Not looking at the importance of this human trait is simply no longer an option in the backdrop of COVID. So how do we define ‘resilience’ in this context?
Mollie Jean De Dieu coined the term ‘adaptive resiliency,’ as the ecosystems of workplaces are changing faster than ever before and the challenges it presents truly test a person’s tenacity continuously. Having a resilient workforce benefits your businesses, not simply by making people more motivated, capable of dealing with change, and less susceptible to burnout. It also improves employees’ overall health, as resilience and wellbeing in the workplace are intricately linked. Better mental health means less absenteeism and presenteeism, and in turn improves people’s performance throughout the workplace.
Join Mollie to further look into the benefits of adaptive resilience and how businesses can develop this key trait in the new world of work.
About Speaker: MOLLIE JEAN DE DIEU
Mollie Jean De Dieu is the General Manager of the French fashion and accessory company Longchamp, in Singapore & Malaysia, a keynote speaker and the founder of the NGO - ‘Emotional Inclusion in the workforce’.
Her focus is to specifically look at a new paradigm of leadership in the corporate realm, that requires companies to recognize and care for the humanity of the individuals they lead by investing in a therapist in their organisations, to spearhead sustainable growth. Over her long career spanning one and a half decades in the fashion industry and listening to hundreds of stories of people who have navigated work whilst facing the ‘perfect storm’, Mollie realized the ‘realness’ of the subject matter and the urgent need to advocate a safe platform in the corporate world, where emotions can be heard, recognized and dealt with, for an enhanced business productivity.
On the ‘Emotional Inclusion’ podcast (available on iTunes/Spotify), Mollie hosts global leaders with a voice who are advocates for Emotional Inclusion and Mental Health. It is aimed to open up the discussion and destigmatise mental health problems in the workforce, set out to be the biggest challenge of the century with depression as the leading cause of disability and premature death. Mollie’s mission is to shatter the status quo of today’s business landscape and lead the way to a wholesome new mindset in the workforce.
A self-proclaimed citizen of the world, Mollie grew up between Africa, France, the United States and has made Asia her home for the past fifteen years. She spent 9 years in Hong Kong and 6 years in Singapore where she currently resides.
Mollie is a member of KeyNote Women’s Speakers Directory, the leading registry of female public speakers globally.
