Abstract and Keywords

Building on and extending beyond current definitions, we define resilience at work as a positive developmental trajectory characterized by demonstrated competence in the face of, and professional growth after, experiences of adversity in the workplace. In this chapter, we review, consider, and comment on the research history, nature, and consequences of resilience at work; share our perspective on resilience at work and situate this in current debate; and identify promising directions for future research. Our primary objective is to stimulate a productive conversation about resilience at work in ways that enable our research community to advance this important area of inquiry.
