The Resilient Leader
Following the series of practical “leadership talks” with Jean Church this event considers where change is a constant and the “bounce back” ability an essential, the application of resilience principles can be used as a powerful competitive advantage for any Leader in business.
Successful change requires a profound understanding of not just what it is that has to change but also how to change. Understanding the behavioral patterns that highly resilient people consistently demonstrate enables others to replicate what resilient people do, in turn increasing resilience capacity on both an individual and organisational level.
