About This Course

Resilient leaders have the ability to adapt to change, manage their stressors, maintain psychological well-being in the face of adversity and grow through difficult experiences.

Resilience is not just about demonstrating dogged perseverance to overcome a challenge. Sometimes you have to change course. It’s not always a matter of buckling down and devoting more time and effort to a project. A better approach might be to seek help. When leaders come under pressure, they often stop investing in resilience resources and throw their energy reserves off balance. As a result, their resilience levels decrease when leaders need them most.

Leadership strategy firm YSC Consulting has identified five inputs for strengthening resilience habits. Their evidence-based program lays out proactive steps leaders can take to improve all six resilience resources. YSC illustrates how leaders use strategies for Support, Confidence, Striving, Recovery, and Adapting to build lifelong habits. These habits preserve energy levels, create fulfillment, and maintain well- being, even as daily pressures and setbacks challenge our energy levels.

In this course, leaders learn very practical activities to build resilience through personalized resilience resources that lead to happier, healthier, and more engaged lives.
