Benefits of Resilient Leadership

You and your clients will really benefit from learning about Resilient Leadership. The concepts, methods and tools are practical and able to be used immediately at home, at work, in fact in any social settings you and your clients will encounter.

What Fuels the Emotional System?

One insight that becomes obvious in the RL Coach Certification training is how to distinguish between two types of anxiety provoking emotions. Some situations produce acute anxiety while others drive more chronic and long lasting.

The Amygdala Hijack

In our RL Coach Certification Program we help our participants understand emotional hijacking driven by the amygdala – the primal component of our brains. In recognizing and managing the power of this “automatic functioning” you and your clients will be more at thoughtful choice even in highly anxious situations.

Resilient Leadership Definition

At the core, Resilient Leadership is a three-step process. First, we learn to see the emotional system around us and how it impacts all of our experiences. Second, we learn how to think through situations in life in a less reactive but rather calm, connected and convicted way.  Finally, we learn how to take action that is thoughtful, well considered and guided by reason not emotion.

What Sets Resilient Leadership Apart?

We teach leaders (and the coaches who work with them) how to navigate the hidden chemistry of their organization, what we call the emotional system.  Seldom does anything in a leader’s professional development adequately prepare them to work effectively with the emotional side of their organization, and yet emotional dynamics are always the driver or the barrier of continued and sustained success. We dive deeply into the understanding and mastery of emotional systems in our training and we equip you to bring this unique perspective and skill set to your clients.

How You will Benefit From This Program

The Resilient Leadership tools we provide in this program will enable you to help your clients to lead with greater calm, clarity and conviction in the midst of heightened anxiety caused by increasing complexity and accelerating change. This kind of leadership is always important but is even more relevant now, given the level of anxiety and uncertainty that every organization and business must grapple with. As the pandemic continues to unfold, people are hungry for new ways of sustaining themselves and their teams over time. Leaders must inspire their organizations to prevail and position them to emerge on the other side of this crisis stronger and better. Our training will give you a unique set of coaching tools and distinctions that will equip you to meet this need, and will provide you with a timely and compelling offer for your clients.
