Our reader poll today asks: How actively do you seek to build personal resilience?
- Very: it’s a big focus of mine.: 49.4%
- Somewhat: I’ll focus on it from time to time.: 34.9%
- Not very: If I build the skill, it’s not intentional.: 9.1%
- Not at all: I rarely even think about resilience.: 6.6%
Resilience is a differentiator. A large proportion of you focus on building your personal and leadership resilience. That’s great! The ability to stay strong and thrive during turbulent times is the hallmark of a great leader. If you want to increase your resilience, consider focusing on four critical areas: maintaining your physical well-being, managing your thinking, fulfilling your purpose and harnessing the power of connections. A deliberate approach to building resilience will go much further than letting resilience just happen.
