As England enters Lockdown v2 with the rest of the UK in their own strict measures, it's time to dig deep, keep our collective chin up and develop a persistent and consistent mindset.

Develop a Persistent & Consistent Mindset

So far, 2020 has called for a level of adaptability and agility that many of us were not aware was within us. We’ve all worked hard to adapt to new ways of working, collaborating and generally getting things done differently. We had to adapt to be supply teachers during online homeschool, get used to our partners being unexpected co-workers and grab those gold dust-like online supermarket slots as soon as they go live.

We have done well. We have adapted and we should be proud of that – we are still here, kicking on. But with Lockdown v2, and to use the Churchillian phrase, it feels like this is the end of the beginning, rather than the beginning of the end. It’s somewhat sobering after the good weather of summer and Eat Out to Help Out.

Let’s hope it is the other way round. Media messaging around various vaccines appears hopeful and Covid treatments are much improved. What we need now is to strengthen our resolve and to be persistent and consistent.

The ability to be persistent and consistent, aka 'chipping away at something', is crucial. Especially if you are being asked to rely on your ability to adapt for a long period of time and during periods of sustained change.

The benefits of being persistent and consistent

Unfortunately being persistent and consistent doesn’t come naturally to everyone. Especially for those with fragile self-esteem or who struggle with their assertiveness. It can be easier to throw up one’s hands and say I can’t! But in November 2020 that simply isn’t an option – we can and we will. Even if it means that we need additional support and training to achieve that mindset.

Fortunately however, being persistent and consistent aren’t character traits as such, nor are they behaviours. They are elements of resilience, a skill which can be developed, taught, and activated with greater self-awareness, training and coaching.

Actively developing a persistent and consistent mindset helps to create a framework that enables the individual to perform at their best, without having to resort to unsustainably stretching their behaviour. By improving their resilience, the individual is still able to behave in a way which is natural to them, while dealing with the challenges they face.

When a person demonstrates consistency in the workplace ... their behaviour is reassuring to the people around them and they are able to lead effectively. They communicate, follow-up and perform in a way that is reliable and extremely desirable during sustained periods of change.

Our resilience really matters

Our collective adaptability has seen us through 2020 so far. To get through and beyond the next six months we now need to draw on the other dimensions of resilience, alongside perseverance:

  • Self-esteem
  • Assertiveness
  • Optimism
  • Unbiased attitude
