Renewed dimensions - - organizational members need to recover from a traumatic situation and go back at least to the pre-event condition both in the physical and mental sense

Resilience encompasses more than just bouncing back, in some circumstances resilience may result in a renewed organization that is entirely distinct when compared to the pre-event state
