“A practical guide for gaining and maintaining strength through the trials and tribulations of leading and living.”
Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and host of the TED podcast WorkLife
Do you believe the key to success is working harder and longer? Do you give up personal time—sleep, exercise, and time with family and friends—to deal with the issue(s) calling your attention? If you’re the type of person (as most leaders are) who takes responsibility for addressing challenges seriously, this brute force response is straightforward and instinctive. While this approach may be effective for a brief time, eventually it wears you down mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally. Not only do your health, wellbeing, and relationships suffer, but you compromise your ability to function productively and effectively.
Drawing on scientific research and practical experience at the Center for Creative Leadership, Resilience That Works: Eight Practices for Leadership and Life offers an alternative—a portfolio of 8 resilience practices to keep you healthy, focused, and functioning effectively for the long haul. Filled with concrete and actionable advice, Resilience That Works encourages you to examine why you may be faltering and guides you in the identification of personalized strategies for developing lasting resilience.
