How Resilient People Stand Back Up When Life Knocks Them Down

How Resilient People Stand Back Up When Life Knocks Them Down | Embodied Leadership | Scoop.it

While we all expect setbacks and challenges in work and life, sometimes they’re beyond epic. Perhaps you lost your job a year ago or you’re about to run out of money. Maybe you flunked your certification exam for the third time and everyone knows about it. Or it could be that your angry rant went viral, and now all of your coworkers are either whispering about you or shunning you entirely.


An occasional disaster does happen for most of us, either in our professional or personal lives. And while it’s not helpful for someone to say, “Well, at least you didn’t [insert something worse],” many people have been through unimaginable hardships.

The skills required to bounce back from a major professional trauma are remarkably similar to those necessary for resilience in virtually any other area of life. Here’s what highly resilient people do in the face of adversity:

Are you a leader (in name only)? Counterfeit Leadership

donhornsby's curator insight, April 18, 8:55 AM
(From the article): Real leadership also means making hard choices, overcoming difficult challenges, and encouraging constituents to embrace change. Real leaders are not afraid to take a firm stance and accept responsibility for their decisions. In so doing, decisions are never made to win a popularity contest or to placate everyone by being all things to all people. Precious resources are allocated in areas where they provide the greatest good while carefully balancing short-term performance with long-term success. And, while you may not always agree with a real leader’s decision, you’ll always know that every decision was made in an honest, fair, and objective fashion. You’ll never have to second-guess a real leader’s intent; you’ll know what he or she stands for.
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 18, 9:38 AM
When we focus on accountability, leadership is no longer leadership. Leadership is about accepting responsibility. Yes, there are external structures that hold us to account, but how we repond (same root as reponsible) is how we experience being a leader. The other thing we do is conflate leadership and management. They are different and play partcular roles in  leading.

What are Today's Most Important Leadership Skills?

What are Today's Most Important Leadership Skills? | Embodied Leadership | Scoop.it
Being an effective leader means mastering skills from five key themes, a new study has found.

Dr Sunnie Giles, an organizational scientist and leadership development consultant, undertook research to find out the traits needed to be an effective leader. Her research involved 195 leaders across 15 countries.

Participants were asked to identify the 15 most important leadership competencies from a list of 74. The top 10 were then grouped into five main themes that all leaders should aspire to achieve.

“These five areas present significant challenges to leaders due to the natural responses that are hardwired into us,” Dr Giles notes.

She goes on to say that with “deep self-reflection and a shift in perspective… there are also enormous opportunities for improving everyone’s performance by focusing on our own.”

Prof. Hankell's curator insight, February 12, 2015 9:26 AM

 Two of the main barriers to a lasting and effective leadership transformation are compartmentalization – treating ‘the people side’ as separate from strategy and cost control – and command and control mindsets, which often persist after a nominal shift towards empowerment has been made.

What Actually Makes People Trust You | Fast Company | Embodied Leadership | Scoop.it

The phrase "talk is cheap" is old, and in leadership roles, talk is particularly cheap.


It is easy to make pronouncements about directions and vision. For people to trust what you say, though, it is important to recognize that you communicate in three ways: through what you say, what you do, and what you reward. And each form of communication on this list is more important than the last....

Interacting with remote employees is not as comfortable for leaders as working with people face to face.  Increasingly we find the workforce to be more dispersed and leaders that tend to overcompensate by more frequent visits, calls, reporting, etc.


This article points out that the expectations of all employees, remote or not, should be the same.
