AFMC Connect September focus: Resilience

  • Published
  • Air Force Materiel Command

The ability to persevere during times of challenge and adversity is key to growth as an individual and across the organization.

The AFMC Connect focus topic for September is resilience. It is the ability to withstand the demands of daily life and the challenges that often accompany it, both at home and in the workplace. Resilience is a learned skill that helps individuals continue to move forward, regardless of situation or unexpected challenge.

Organizations can help individuals build resilience by:

  • Providing opportunities to build connections among individuals and teams.
  • Promoting physical and mental wellness opportunities.
  • Helping individuals find purpose in assignments and activities.
  • Supporting individuals in need and helping them find resources for support.
