What is Resilient Leadership?

Resilience is the human capacity to meet adversity, setbacks and trauma, and then recover from them in order to live life fully. Resilient leaders have the ability to sustain their energy level under pressure, to cope with disruptive changes and adapt. They bounce back from setbacks.

They also overcome major difficulties without engaging in dysfunctional behavior or harming others. Resilience is a crucial characteristic of high-performing leaders. Leaders must cultivate it in themselves in order to advance and thrive.

They also carry the responsibility for helping to protect the energy of the people in their teams. Leadership is sustainable only if individuals and teams are able to consistently recover high energy levels.
