    Resilient Leadership in Brief

    Resilient Leadership offers a fresh, insightful, and innovative understanding of how to exercise leadership in a way that is powerfully transformative.

    How Resilient Are You?

    Grounded in the scientific understanding of group functioning, the Resilient Leadership model helps leaders understand how the “emotional system” of their organization — the unconscious, instinctual aspects of human functioning – often dictates, to a great extent, how the organization functions on the rational level. By learning to understand and recognize the emotional system at play within a leader’s environment, s/he is able to calm office anxiety, clear confusion, and spur a productive, engaged workforce.
