The Bamboo-Strategy

Overcome Daily Pressure by using Resilience Strategies

by Katharina Maehrlein


Everyone who wants to have success in a sandwich position must be like a bamboo in a storm: bend with flexibility instead of breaking and meet stresses and strains with strength. This inner strength - resilience - can be learned and helps to overcome challenges to succeed and even grow. The book provides strategies in times of constant change and high workload to extend ones inner strength, to withstand the high pressure in business and private life. The Bamboo stands for resilience and confident assertiveness, strength and sincerity, but also flexibility and resilience. Bamboo is a symbol of resilience and adaptability, patience, honesty and straightforwardness. Adaptability - a value that in our part of the world has a rather negative meaning represents one of the basic skills of resilient people.

There are many and various reasons, but everyone is facing the burnout. Because of this, what is important is often out of sight: developing resistance. Resilience.” Change X

“Like bamboo in the wind: bending instead of breaking. We all admire people who are better at coping with stress, conflicts, and failures than others; who not only withstand but grow with challenges. This internal resistance is called resilience. The good news is that resilience can be developed systematically. In this book you will find tests for self-assessment, checklists, exercises, and pragmatic advice to learn to be as strong and independent in your heart as bamboo and to be able to twist and bend in the storms of everyday work, but not to break. In this book you will find the latest results from resilience and happiness research, and will develop courage, strength, and stamina to firmly cope with the challenging situations in both your personal and work lives. You will build more inner strength and be able to act safely and calmly in your busy dual role.” managerseminare
