How is Resilient Leadership Coaching different from other coaching methods?

The Resilient Leadership model emphasizes that how a leader is present to the emotional system is far more important than the leader’s personality, any management techniques he or she may employ, or how well s/he functions as a role model to be imitated by others. Rather, it is the nature of the leader’s presence—his or her calm assertion of self or anxious inability to take a stand—that most decisively affects the emotional field of which s/he is a part.
