We supported Google in building resilience into their culture.
Resilience Pilot Programme: Dashboard Enterprise.
Google – Googler Engagement division, needed to address internal wellbeing survey scores which were consistently lower than other areas of Google.
They needed long-term, sustainable solutions to help their people manage change better and minimise overwhelm.
The RDQ & Debrief enabled all participants to evaluate their own resilience and identify any areas for improvement, while they monitored daily resilience drivers using the Tracker.
“I was able to see patterns that I could talk to my coach about & discuss ways to improve resilience.”
“Great way to gain insight into yourself/your habits.”
92% found their Debrief conversation beneficial in understanding their resilience better.
85% found the Resilience Tracker brilliant for becoming more self aware of their patterns.
All Google participants grew their understanding of resilience using the Toolkit and personalised Tool Pathways. Participants in Group B completed 3 additional coaching sessions.
