Images of Resilience is an RSVP Design toolbox designed in conjunction with Ei4Change, which contains multiple copies of 16 carefully designed and selected images drawn in an attractive cartoon style. The images are metaphors, representing a range of experiences and emotions linked with the theme of ‘RESILIENCE’. They explore different facets of resilience and its connections with stress, change, challenge and learning.
The cartoon style is accessible to people at all levels in organisations who can relate to the images and experiences depicted. This allows a dialogue that might otherwise be too risky or challenging to be tackled directly.
The set of images and the associated questions explore some of the components of resilience, challenging us to think about what it means for us, how we can develop our resilience and ability to cope with stress and how we can ensure that our resilience is used to enhance our daily lives, rather than locking us into patterns of ineffective or damaging behaviour.
The cards are accompanied by support notes and questions and are designed to be used to stimulate individual thought and group discussion. They can be used in individual coaching or in group-work, whenever the learning objectives relate to personal, team and leadership development, motivation, change management, stress management and an exploration of work-life balance.
Below is a short video giving some more details about the development and use of Images of Resilience.
