    The Definition

    Flexible Work Arrangements (FWAs) are policies and practices designed to strengthen the work-life balance of employees and to maximise their productivity.

    The Stage

    People are increasingly looking for a work environment that offers them flexibility. Finding a good balance between work and other life commitments-such as family responsibilities, studies or outside interests-enables employees to flourish inside and away from the workplace. For employers, flexible work arrangements provide greater freedom in terms of business operating hours; importantly, they also increase retention of experienced staff who might otherwise have been lost to the organisation.

    Definition

    Mental toughness-or resilience-is both a natural attribute and a learned behaviour. It helps people carry on during difficult times and, as a result, grow in confidence and ultimately triumph.

    The Stage

    Setbacks and pressure are part of the fabric of daily life. When faced with problems such as excessive career demands, serious trauma, sickness or sports injuries, people can use mental toughness or resilience to get through the bad times and prepare for the good. Leaders, and the members of their organisational teams, also need resilience to keep them going in the face of relentless stress. Developing the tools and resources to unlock mental toughness has the potential to benefit every aspect of our lives.
