Back It Up - Resilience

Updated: Jul 20, 2019

Composure and health are two ways toward developing resilience

One of the core principles in the development of R.O.E training models is resilience.

Indeed, the R in R.O.E stands for Resilience.

In the cockpit environment the "employment" of resilience is critical. But what is resilience and how does one attain it and retain it?

In psychological terms resilience is the ability to cope with a crisis or to return to pre-crisis status quickly. Resilience exists when the person uses "mental processes and behaviors in promoting personal assets and protecting self from the potential negative effects of stressors"

There are some keywords amongst this description and the ones I have picked out are:

  • ability

  • mental processes

  • personal assets

Let's drill down a little into each of these keywords.


Ability can be described as talent, skill, or proficiency in a particular area. We often hear terms like: "She has the ability to do anything" or "You will need to develop your ability before you will be able to ......"

So how do you develop ability? Here are some key ways in which ability can be developed:

  • Enhance communication skills.

  • Find and listen to a mentor.

  • Upgrade your skills.

  • Learn something new.

  • Create a list of your accomplishments and goals.

  • Pick up a new habit.

Given that the development of ability is one of the pathways to becoming more resilient the participation in a R.O.E Training Solutions course is a sure fire way to support personal growth in this area.

Mental Processes

Understanding SELF is a key component to developing resilience

A key learning area embedded into all R.O.E courses is the understand of SELF and one's mental processes.

Without the understanding of WHY we do what we do and HOW to employ effective mental processes, we keep getting the same outcomes.

All participants in R.O.E. courses will learn the construct and application of proprietary mental models. These models are easy to remember and easy to apply. The models are tried and proven in real world, legacy carrier operations.

Personal Assets

Each and every one of us is born with higher faculties. These are huge personal assets and, in most people, the majority of these assets are significantly under utilised.

R.O.E training courses have been developed with a view to work with participants to gain greater knowledge of their higher faculties and how they can be developed.

R.O.E models have been designed to ensure that a person's higher faculties will be used during the application of the models.

The development of and the application of resilience in the cockpit environment is critical. It is a key component of human performance. The lack of resilience has been highlighted as a factor in aviation incidents and accidents.

If you would like to develop your resilience, re-read this blog and come along to one of R.O.E's courses.
