Most leaders say they're not ready for today's world of change, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. This kind of world calls you to draw upon every ounce of resilience you have - something you already understand, or you wouldn't be here.
But how to cultivate this resilience and bring it into your leadership style is the question of the hour.
I have always been curious to know how adults keep fresh knowledge coming into their lives and work. When I asked people from around the world a series of questions about this, I discovered much more than I anticipated. One of the things I discovered was that of those I interviewed, there was a subset of individuals that showed great resilient leadership in their lives.
When I looked more closely at what was common among them, the inspiration for my focus on resilient leaders was solidified. You see, I knew those common characteristics could be developed by anyone. When I developed them for myself, my leadership became more effective. This was news. I had to share it with others, and Resilient Leadership was born.
