Your agency is embracing resilience!
Congratulations! Your agency is embracing resilience in many areas. Remember, resilience muscles weaken without regular exercise. To maintain your current level of resilience, we recommend that:
1. Diverse: Choose a disruptive event or surprise your agency has faced in the past 5 years. Identify whose perspective was missing from the team that determined the action steps or solutions in the face of that disruption. Ask: what are we doing to ensure we have truly diverse points of view and skills at the table next time?
2. Integrated: Ask for volunteers for a “Resilience Champion.” Your agency’s Resilience Champion can be someone who gets jazzed about the process of brainstorming, who can lead the group in tabletop exercises from time to time, and who will help keep the cycle of continuity planning moving.
