Why Dee is key on resilience.

The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.”

Ernest Hemingway

The adaptability to change, difficulty, failure and stress is identified as one of the top skills needed for effective leadership. With all that is demanded of us, it’s not always easy to bounce back and keep moving forward.  Ill-equipped leaders become rattled and unbalanced and never regain composure during rough periods. I am grateful to have been part of The US military - an organization of brilliant and resilient men and women. I loved serving my country, yet it was the best of times and the most difficult of times. The day I retired I realized that every time I was convinced I couldn’t go on, I had. My leaders were there to mentor me until I was able to do it for others. I’ve learned great lesson on resilience to give back and teach others.

What do effective leaders need to be resilient?

According to the American Psychological Association, resilience is “the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress.”


That’s all great but how do you adapt? Do you have the right skills and inner resources to call upon? Where do you find them and how can you help your team bounce back from stress, failure or adversity? The answer…resilience can be learned, and when practiced can help turn an average manager into an effective leader.

  1. Resilient leaders have the skill to go through hard times, resolve problems and instill
    confidence in their team when times are stormy.

  2.  Resilient leaders help build prosperous and peak performing organizations
    regardless of the circumstances they face.

  3. Resilient leaders support individuals to positively pursue new ideas and alternative
    solutions when change happens.
