This week you have learned about a wide range of external challenges, from those affecting everyone, to more specific ones in your workplace. You’ve considered how developing your career resilience can allow you to respond more positively to the changes and challenges that arise.
You should now be able to:
- identify external challenges that might impact on your career resilience
- understand the value of career resilience when facing external change
- recognise how a supportive employer and a positive working environment can enhance career resilience
- understand the part that team resilience plays in supporting your resilience in the workplace.
You are now halfway through the course. The Open University would really appreciate your feedback and suggestions for future improvement in our optional, which you will also have an opportunity to complete at the end of Session 8. Participation will be completely confidential and we will not pass on your details to others.
Next week you will consider a range of different ways to boost your career resilience, learning about different strengths and tactics.
You can now go to Week 5.
