How would you rate yourself on the
It’s a catch phrase for many leadership development programs, but often
leaders are expected to have an endless reserve of energy and stamina to
manage in today’s business world.
In a recent study by Korn-Ferry, they noted that 90% of leaders were let go
due to physical or mental conditions that impacted their leadership
effectiveness. That’s a bit alarming, don’t you think!
- What can you do to change these
numbers and make sure that you’re in the 10%, NOT the 90%?
- How can you allocate the 168 hours
you have in each week to elevate your capacity to deliver, consistently?
According to research, resilience is more
than just a catch phrase. It’s actually an outcome of your personal
mastery, self-awareness and positive mindset.
Personal Mastery involves knowing your strengths and limitations, and
knowing who complements your capabilities.
Self-Awareness requires time for reflection and honest feedback from
others. The term ‘blind spot’ means just that!
- Have you engaged in an assessment to
identify your ‘blind spots’ that provides anonymous feedback from those
who know you best? (Tilt 365 is the NEW paradigm for 360 feedback.)
Positive Mindset goes beyond
positive thinking. It’s an attitude about life that is held by great leaders
and teams who have overcome adversity and challenges, moving forward in the
face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

“Elevate Your Resilient Mindset!”
We’re operating under a new normal in
today’s global business world, and resilient leaders are critical to
managing the continuous changes that are a daily occurrence.
It’s also important that each leader takes responsibility for their own
well-being that serves to elevate their resilience and contributes to
the success of their organization and growth of our economy.
Being resilient not only benefits the organization, but it significantly
raises your positive well-being – mentally, physically, emotionally …
and often, financially!
- How would your well-being be
elevated if you took a few small steps each day to adopt a resilient
5 Strategies that will elevate your
resilient mindset include:
- When faced with a disruptive
situation, optimize outcomes by brainstorming alternative ideas.
[Commendable Trait, Resourceful*]
Example: When a client delivery is off schedule and your
natural reaction is panic or frustration, there is little room for
creative solutions. To optimize the outcome, STOP and THINK … What
is an alternative path to get back on track?
- New ideas abound in the
workplace, and are often greeted with cynicism. When you demonstrate
positive energy toward a new idea, you open the space to quickly
assess its value. [Commendable Trait, Enthusiastic*]
Example: One of your alliance partners recommends a change in
direction that is opposite to the project’s strategic plan. Although
it sounds like a bad idea to you, positively communicate your
curiosity and inquire for understanding. It may be the company’s
next million dollar idea!
- When there is a proven system
that is effective and efficient, changing direction is often viewed
as a waste of time with a lack of trust in its value. By being
adaptable to new ways of doing things, you reflect an openness to
innovation. [Commendable Trait, Flexible*]
Example: A process has worked for you for the past few years,
and you’ve built your schedule around the established process.
However, your boss just announced that the process is changing and
you feel that it’s inconvenient and just one more thing to do.
Rather than staying in this ‘fixed mindset’, step back and consider
the advantages of the new process as it relates to the big picture.
- Express belief in what’s
possible. [Commendable Trait, Optimistic*]
Example: In your first meeting with your new manager and peer
leadership team, your boss announces a surprising change that could
significantly impact the career that was outlined by your previous
boss. Acknowledge your disappointment to yourself, and then mentally
consider alternatives that often have a better outcome than you
originally thought possible.
- With the continual changes in
today’s business world, planning for the future is critical. When
you apply keen insight, you expand positive outcomes. [Commendable
Example: You’re getting bored with your current role and see
little room for growth in the company, and begin exploring external
opportunities. Through your keen insight, you keep all options open.
Although totally unexpected, the best opportunity may show up
