Be Less Anxious
An ability to embody and communicate inner calm in a way that helps others to lower their own anxiety.
Lead with Conviction
To act boldly, take clear stands, and be willing to take risks (even when it makes you vulnerable to failure and ridicule) for the sake of preserving core values or creating a new future you care about.
A new way of SEEING, THINKING and LEADING that helps leaders navigate the hidden dynamics of organizations more effectively. Resilient Leaders are able to:
The Resilient Leadership model calls for leaders to embrace a “New Way of SEEING, THINKING, and LEADING”. In this document we invite you to focus on the nature of the “New Way of THINKING” that has the potential to transform to a dramatic degree the effectiveness of leaders everywhere. “What exactly is this New Way” you might ask. The short answer to this question is to “think systems”, but more specifically it is a mandate to “Think Emotional Systems”.

It has been suggested that the human brain is perhaps the most complex structure in the universe. Neuroscience has progressed dramatically in recent decades, especially with emerging technologies that have allowed us to “peek inside” and observe the hidden workings of our brain in real time. As scientists have started to observe and track a tiny portion of the billions of neurons and hundreds of trillions of interactions among them that take place in our brain minute by minute, day in and day out, we are coming to a fuller realization of just how accurate that claim is. The complexity is staggering.
But despite being at the very primitive beginning of a new science, our understanding of the brain’s inner workings is progressing steadily and is gaining both breadth and depth. One insight that neuroscience has provided us is how difficult (perhaps even impossible) it is for our brain to be both curious and highly anxious at the same time. Our brain performs an incalculable number of tasks simultaneously, but it seems that the circuitry involved in being curious and the circuitry involved in being anxious work to defeat one another’s ability to dominate our mood/consciousness at any given moment.
Another insight that neuroscience has given us is what is called “neuroplasticity”, which one dictionary defines as “the ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections, especially in response to learning or experience”. It appears that from birth to death, our brain is constantly laying down new neural pathways, making new connections based on previous learning and ongoing experience. Research has proven that focused attention and persistent practice are two keys to this capacity of the brain to “rewire” itself to build new knowledge, skills and behaviors.
