The Resilient Leader: Strategies to Manage Effectively During Stress, Challenge & Change

 

Busy professionals live and work with uncommon amounts of stress today, and that stress, coupled with the rapid change and uncertainty companies face, has led to greater levels of burnout and disengagement. Leaders need to be mindful of burnout and its effects in order to maintain high levels of productivity and engagement within their teams and themselves.   

Luckily, there are specific skills leaders can learn to help themselves, and those they lead, build resilience to stress and prevent burnout. Five decades of research shows that resilience is a bundle of skills that can be taught, learned and improved. Resilience skills are currently being taught in the military, education, the legal profession and in business. Take the opportunity to learn the basics of burnout and more importantly, how to prevent it using research-based resilience tools.
