Resilience: The Other 21st Century Skills

Resilience:  The Other 21st Century Skills | Building Resilience | Scoop.it

"Due to the interest of my post The Other 21st Skills, I decided to individually discuss each of the skills or dispositions I proposed that are in addition to the seven survival skills as identified by Tony Wagner.

This post focuses on resiliency. The first post focused on Grit:  The Other 21st Century Skills. Some would categorize Grit and Resiliency as the same skill, but it is my belief they are involve two different, but interconnected, skill sets. While grit focuses on persistence, resilience is about bouncing back in the face of challenges and/or failure."

If transformational leadership is about envisioning the change; then adaptive leadership is upon shifting the mindset. Adaptive leadership is given to impacting the environment.
