Leadership Development: Resilience
A person is described as resilient when they are able to ‘bounce back’ from problems, challenges and set-backs quickly and effectively. Being ‘calm in a crisis’ or being ‘everyone’s rock’ is not necessarily the same as being resilient. The demonstration of resilience requires the presence of difficulty, challenge or upset. The most resilient people don’t simply bounce back unscathed, but rather they learn more about themselves through failure and often return stronger and more competent.
