Gracious & Strong

Apr 29, 2021

As we continue to re-enter the workplace, it’s evident that things simply won’t be the same as we once knew. One of the biggest differentiators among leaders is resilience -- the ability to bounce back from setbacks. 
I recently was invited to speak to students and industry leaders at Western Michigan University’s virtual 55th Annual Food Marketing Conference, “Thriving in the Age of Uncertainty”. I spoke on one of my most relevant and most-requested topics – Mastering Change. This time, I put extra focus on a couple of topics resonating with leaders now more than ever.
In today’s episode of the Gracious & Strong podcast, I’m sharing an excerpt from the conference where I examine two emerging leadership concepts: Resilience and Psychological Safety.  

Here’s a preview of what we’ll discuss:

  • Positive influences of resilience on work satisfaction, engagement (and even your own health and wellness)
  • Finding ways to excel and learn in “untested” situations
  • 5 skilled (and less-skilled) behaviors of resilient people
  • The power of our support systems
  • Creating an environment of empathy, conducive to growth

We’ve all experienced likely the biggest setback of our lifetime, but it’s given us the opportunity to set ourselves apart as leaders who consider the needs of our teams, and not just ourselves.
