“Your level of success will seldom exceed your level of personal development because success is something you attract by the person you become” as quoted from Jim Rohn. The Four Cornerstones of a Resiliency Practitioner makes quantum improvements in the approach, productivity, and maturity of any Resiliency program whether its BC, DR, CM, or VC. These cornerstones provide a broader foundation of knowledge and a holistic approach to a balanced resiliency program.
Legacy practices focus on program strategies and methodologies with a little governance and compliance mixed in. And we continue to use this strategy even though we struggle to develop a reasonable program while being overshadowed in apathy. The reimagined practitioner, the one who is getting good at getting results, must have a more holistic understanding of resiliency practices, the skills and competencies to do the job well, can establish buy-in, ownership, and participation for the program, and to build a system designed to get the results senior leaders want.
- These four cornerstones are:
- Objectives: Program Strategies & Methodologies
- Expertise: Practitioner Skills & Competencies
- Execution: Service Delivery Model
- Outcomes: Governance, Compliance, & Maturity
As professionals, we often shift our attention towards the hot topic or flavor of the month for a variety of reasons but usually because of a lack of clear strategic planning and management framework. And that’s because there are no standards or systems beyond developing response strategies and documenting those strategies within a written plan.
So, what should we focus on? By working harder on ourselves than we do on the job! As we grow personally, our programs will grow. Our influence will increase. We will meet our objectives. Buy-in, ownership, and participation will be commonplace. And as planned, our program will mature!
And then we’ll have a resilient organization.
