“Most notably, this study shows that high agility is associated with much higher levels of depression and anxiety risk when combined with low resilience. In essence, agility produces negative mental health consequences when the employee cannot be resilient. Because agility requires constant reaction and adaptation, its effects cause greater anxiety and depression if not accompanied by resilient, psychological skills that keep their emotions under control. This supports other findings where high agility and low resilience were found to be a detrimental combination.”
An interesting new study on the relationship between resilience and agility. Decreasing resistance and increasing resilience is a major focus of our Solution Focused Agile.
