About the Career Resilience Toolkit

About the Career Resilience Toolkit

Career Resilience Toolkit

The kit is a physical tool that encourages a growth mindset and highlights the personal qualities it requires. It includes buttons, thought cards and a journal. The buttons depict images of the five components of resilience. The thought cards, meanwhile, are designed to inspire you and also contain activities that encourage you to reflect on your thoughts, feelings and actions. In addition to cultivating a growth mindset, such visuals are reminders of how your current situation is helping to build your preferred future.

Such an attitude requires developing five crucial traits that contribute to resilience — curiosity, persistence, optimism, risk-taking and flexibility — as they apply to your career.
