Resilience Quickstart Guides


These Quickstart Guides are packed with practical information you can use in the heat of a crisis, as a prompt to respond in a more resilient way.

They are extracts from the book: Resilient Organizations: How to Survive, Thrive and Create Opportunities Through Crisis and Change, by Erica Seville, Kogan Page Publishers, 2016.

We suggest printing them out to include in your emergency plan or, even better, use as posters on the wall as a visual reminder of things to focus on.

These Quickstart Guides are free to download and print, however to gain full benefit from them we recommend reading the book first to understand the concept of organisational resilience and how it may be applied to your organisation.
