Resilience is the ability to bounce back from adversity. It’s what allows you to recover from change or hardship, whether in the workplace or life in general.
As a leader, you can change your views, habits, and responses by modifying your thoughts and actions, which will help broaden your outlook and become more adaptable to change.
To become more resilient, focus on these 8 areas:
1. Accept Change. Find ways to become more comfortable with change. Change is constant and inevitable, and you can only be successful if you accept it rather than resist it.
2. Learn Continuously. Learn new skills, gain new understandings, and apply them during times of change. Don’t hold onto old behaviors and skills, especially when it’s obvious that they don’t work anymore.
3. Take Charge. Embrace self-empowerment. Take charge of your own career and development. Don’t expect someone else to guide the way.
