Resilience means to overcome the unexpected

I remember a time back at the end of 2007 when the financial crisis started to unfold.  I worked in financial services then and it was a torrid time. The banks were not prepared for what happened.  They hadn’t put a contingency plan for such an event.  Resilience means to overcome the unexpected. Legislation has been put in place to prevent that happening again. Banks now have to go through regular stress testing.  It will be interesting to see how they cope with the financial markets in the next few weeks.

What is happening now, is even more catastrophic.  Everyone knows the NHS are on the front-line in the hospitals, but it is also having a massive effect on care businesses.  The stress and strain of trying to do your best for the most vulnerable in our society is enormous.  I’m hearing of care workers crying because they are under so much pressure, managers and business owners not sleeping because they are taking the weight of everyone on their shoulders.  They are trying so hard to keep it together and I applaud them for that.  My niece is in a care home on lock down, my sister can’t go and visit her which is so upsetting but it’s the safest thing to do.  We have to abide by the legislation to protect us all.  I’ve volunteered with NHS as I want to help where I can.

When this is all over we will re-group and we will learn from it.  It will enable us to build resilience to overcome the unexpected.  Not going to be for a while but we will be there to support those care businesses when they need to do this.
