Encouraging wellness and resilience among your team

Written by Darin Fox, Released 28 Sep 2020

We know this: look after your team’s wellbeing and resilience, and you’ll create greater productivity. But how exactly do you improve overall wellbeing - and what danger signs show you that team wellbeing is threatened?

In this episode of the Fastleader podcast, Darin Fox, Chief Research Officer at HFL, asks executive coach Greg Holland-King and health & wellbeing specialist Lucas Finch:

  • What are wellbeing and resilience?

  • Why is it so important that leaders encourage resilience in their teams?

  • What’s different about between leading a team through change versus leading through ongoing uncertainty?

  • What are the signs leaders need to watch out for to know if someone in their team is not coping? What can a leader do to help people who are not coping?


  • “Resilience is that quality that allows us to bounce back and get back in the game.”

  • “Ambiguity is going to be the new norm.”

  • “Leadership is about relationships.”

  • “Leaders need to help their people get comfortable with being uncomfortable.”

  • “Let’s not awfulize the situation.”
