Have you ever been a member on a team where it felt like the team lacked direction and control? Or, the majority of team members were unengaged and lacking passion? Or, perhaps you've been on a team where the group struggles with changing direction and embracing change? These are all signs that a team is lacking Hardiness, which is the psychological component of resiliency that involves three qualities: Challenge (the degree to which you embrace change and see failure as a learning opportunity), Control (the belief that you can influence outcomes), and Commitment (a tendency to see life as meaningful and purposeful). Hardiness is a crucial component of resiliency and these hardy qualities are at the foundation of a cohesive and well-performing team.
