Resilience is knowing that you are the only one that has the power and the responsibility to pick yourself up.
In today’s global and technologically advanced business world, resilience has become one of the top five leadership traits essential for navigating a changing and fast-paced work environment. Resilient leaders, who bounce back from setbacks and stay focused on the big picture during disruptive times, have the capability to rise and meet various business challenges along with their teams.
At the same time, the demands we put on ourselves personally and the crises we face at home can deplete us, wear us down and confront our ability to be resilient both at home and at work, which affects our relationships, our children, and our communities.
Let’s face it. We need to be resilient in all areas of our lives at all times. In any given moment we are:
- Personally facing tough times
- Experiencing setback after set back, when nothing is going our way
- Holding onto a big dream with no clue about how to get there
- Working at a company or organization going through significant changes
- Leaned on by others to be strong when we are feeling weak ourselves
To be resilient, do we have to be born with this “bounce-back-ability?” Or is there a way to cultivate it, use it, and help others build their own?
