My son recently attended a leadership development workshop. When he returned I asked him what the most important lesson of Leadership was from his day away.
He thought for a moment and said
‘Resilience! I learnt that to succeed as a leader I need to be resilient’.
For a day’s work I thought that was an apt take out.
Resilience is a leadership characteristic that I continue to draw on throughout my journey. It is the ability to recover from situations and keep going. Challenges help us flex our resilience muscles. The more we flex them, the more resilient we become.
So if you are facing any challenges today, find a way to work your way through them. You will come out stronger on the other side.
