Images of Resilience is a collection of engaging metaphor cards representing a range of experiences and emotions linked to the theme of "resilience" or "grit". They explore different facets and connections with stress, change, challenge and learning.
What is resilience?
Use these images to develop coaching conversations about individuals' experience of resilience and share definitions of what it means to build meaning. Each image has a range of suggested coaching questions to help explore in what situations you might need resilience, and what qualities or skills you can develop to strengthen resilience. If you are working with younger students in an Educational setting consider using our Images of Resilience in Education product.

A fully digital version of the is physical is now available on https://experientiallearningtools.com - see Images of Resilience (online version) - that can be used with virtual learning teams and groups. If virtual teams are to succeed there is an increased need to develop a sense of relatedness or connectedness, as well as ensuring each person contributes.
Using these 16 x accessible cartoon images allows people to choose a personal relatable image and provides an opportunity for people to share their thoughts, challenges and experience to build their personal resilience. Resilience underpins individual and team performance and is critical to all organisations irrespective of size and function.

• Stimulate Discussion and Explore what Resilience Means
• Develop Resilience in Coached Pairs and Small Groups
• Learning to Learn
• Team Roles, Values, and Culture
• Managing People and Relationships
• Visual and Metaphorical Skills
• Resilience coaching skills
• Mental toughness

Images of Resilience's cartoon style images are accessible, and people at all levels in organisations relate to the images and experiences depicted. This allows a ‘door’ to be opened into dialogue that might otherwise be too risky or challenging to be tackled directly.

This 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 designed to be used to stimulate individual thought and group discussion and can be used in individual coaching or in team work, whenever the learning objectives relate to personal, team and leadership development, motivation, change management, stress management and an exploration of work-life balance.

Developing resilience through effective stress management is fundamental to enhancing emotional intelligence, yet resilience can be context specific. Resilience underpins individual and team performance and is critical to all organisations irrespective of size and function. This RSVP Design experiential activity was developed in partnership with Ei4Change to help raise awareness of situations and issues that affect resilience for each individual.

Images of Resilience is an emotional intelligence training activity that contains multiple copies of 16 carefully designed and selected images that have been drawn in an attractive cartoon style. The images are metaphors, representing a range of experiences and emotions that are linked with the theme of resilience. They explore different facets of resilience and its connections with stress, change, challenge and learning.

We also developed an Images of Resilience in Education product which is part of our Education Sector Package for those who wish to use the activity with students or young people in an educational setting.

How do you assess & support people with something that is individual, fluctuates daily, and is context specific?
