Workshop

From a run-down team… to a resilient tribe

The Resilience Tribe Workshop will empower your people to become their best selves – so they can build a happier, healthier culture together. We take them on an insightful 5-part journey they’ll never forget.

1

Exploring the 3 tribe essentials

We start by exploring the three pillars of a highly-resilient tribe – drawn from research on real tribes around the world. These are:

  • Movement: to enhance the mindset and cope with trauma
  • Appreciation: to create positive emotions and better wellbeing
  • Purpose: to inject meaning into action – and passion into life

2

Shifting to a resilient mindset

Next, your team reflects on their current state of resilience. They then focus on shifting from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset, which helps them see:

  • Learning and self-development as an ongoing part of life
  • Challenges and change as opportunities
  • Goals as a result of dedication and sustained effort

3

Inspiring innovation

The ability to adapt is essential for improving performance and building resilience. Here, your team explores drivers of innovation, which include:

  • Feeling safe and valued
  • Being creative and flexible
  • Coping with challenges
  • Remaining open to change

4

Being mindful

From internal thoughts to external sensations, we will help your team become more aware of themselves and others in different situations.  

They will also learn how to focus their five senses – and approach tasks wholeheartedly. 

5

Enhancing mental health

This final lesson will help your team fine-tune mental health practices such as:

  • Reflecting on their mental health and resilience
  • Listening to physical, emotional and behavioural red flags
  • Following healthy routines (e.g. sleep, stress management)
  • Opening up to people and supporting other tribe members

Our  story 

A story inspired by real resilience

 

‘I feel alone.’     ‘I’m not valued.’     ‘We don’t work as a team.’

 

After hearing the same frustrations from workplace to workplace for years on end, we set out to find a solution – and make a change.

Inspiration from around the world

Did you know that hundreds of age-old tribes can be still found scattered around the world? And did you know that many have adapted to Western influences for survival? Centuries on, these tribes have remained strong and cohesive – by being open and flexible to change.

After learning about these inspiring people and communities, we had one burning question:

What are the Universal practices they share that make them so resilient?

After learning about these inspiring people and communities, we had one burning question:

What are the Universal practices they share that make them so resilient?

Revealing their hidden secrets

After extensive research, we found that certain elements drive resilience in these communities.

In particular, we found that rituals such as singing and dancing create a sense of cohesion and belonging. And we discovered that sharing skills and experiences gives people purpose – while building trust and safety.
With these insights, we saw an opportunity to apply these elements of resilience to the corporate world.

Embracing individuality creates unity

Another illuminating discovery was the extent to which tribes embrace ‘different’.

As melting pots of skills, experiences, personalities and perspectives, tribes encourage people to flourish as individuals. This is what builds their strong foundation and binds teams together.

Ultimately, no two people are the same. And that’s something that should be celebrated every day – to build a successful team.

Transforming the corporate world – one team at a time

Fast-paced and ever-changing, today’s corporate world makes it harder for us to connect with people in an authentic, personal way.

Thankfully however, we still possess many tribal instincts from our ancestors that link resilience to belonging. We simply need to learn how to access and act on these instincts – despite the individualistic ways of today.

By bringing what we’ve learnt about tribes into the workplace, we believe we can create happier teams and more cohesive cultures overall. That’s why Resilience Tribe was born.
