Like any skill, resilience can be strengthened over time
Can too much resilience desensitise us to bad situations?
Self compassion is critical to build resilience. But used wrongly, it can hide a deeper underlying issue.
If we sometimes find it difficult to ask for help, imagine how hard it is for the people we lead to raise their hand when they need support and assistance.
Difficult conversations are hard and uncomfortable for any leader. But avoiding the problem is just going to make things worse.
Learn how to manage yourself so that you can continue to perform at your best even under increasing pressure and expectations.
The next time you’re being too hard on yourself, recognise that you are dimming your own personal power.
Embracing the ups and downs is part of our learning journey through life. Rather than resisting when things don’t work out as planned, ask yourself what you can learn, and move on.
Just keep moving forward. One small step at a time.
Building greater resilience is necessary not just for success but also for your mental wellbeing. Understand what refuels you so that you can perform at your best on a daily basis and for the long haul.
