Our reader poll today asks: Which resilience-building technique do you use most frequently?
- Building a strong support system: 21.3%
- Defining a sense of purpose: 16.3%

Try many different resilience approaches. Folks are trying a variety of resilience-building approaches, and I’m sure most of you are doing more than one of these. That’s great! In turbulent and stressful times, it’s easy to put our own well-being on the back burner and forget to take care of ourselves as leaders. There’s a clear rationale for resilience-building. You have to take care of yourself before you can take care of others. If you’re in that 5% of folks who aren’t using any of these approaches, I hope you’re doing something to take care of yourself. If you’re not, try some of these techniques and see if any of them work well for you. Your life could very well depend on it.
