Building a Resilience Team

Over the past year and half, Transition OKC organized a process to help you get started building a Resilience Team. The process and tools are not set in stone, so adapt them or add to them in a way that works best for you and your team.

Step 1: Organizing

Step 2: Building
The Resilience Guide (coming soon) provides the outline of a three-session process to help you and your participants become a team. The process supports your team in building trust, learning about resilience, deciding how your team members want to help each other, and forming a consensus about how to work together.

The Resilience Guide includes a Resilience Self-Assessment (click here to download) that can help your team members assess their own resilience and identify strengths and challenges.

Step 3: Teamwork
After your team is formed, the sky is the limit!
