How Great Leaders Build Resilience in their Organizations

Resilience is critical in organizations as it enables them to adapt to change, maintain employee well-being, foster innovation, promote collaboration, and enhance organizational agility.
All of which are essential for long-term success in today’s dynamic environment.
In the new episode of The World Class Leaders Show, I invite Sharesz T. Wilkinson. Sharesz is a CEO, a Forbes & Harvard Business Review Advisory Councils member, strategic advisor, an international executive communication expert, and one of the top 50 global women to look out for in 2023.
In our conversation, we discussed how to find and build resilience as a leader and the impact this can have on company results and culture.
  1. Resilience allows teams and individuals to bounce back from setbacks, embrace change, and quickly find alternative solutions. It enables organizations to navigate through adversity and seize opportunities for growth.
  2. When individuals can effectively cope with stress, setbacks, and high-pressure situations, they are less likely to experience burnout and more likely to maintain a positive work-life balance. Resilience fosters a supportive work environment where employees feel empowered and equipped to handle challenges, leading to increased job satisfaction and retention.
  3. Self-regulation skills are about engineering an outcome that you want to achieve.
  4. It isn’t easy to not engage your emotions when making decisions. If you can become self-aware, you can recognize your feelings and take steps to manage them.
  5. Once you know yourself and have self-awareness you can lead others more effectively
  6. A skilled communicator can master both deductive and inductive communication
  7. You must align your team behind the same purpose, to create engagement and ownership for all members
  8. When faced with adversity, resilient individuals and teams come together, leveraging each other’s strengths, and supporting one another. This sense of unity and shared purpose fosters trust, open communication, and effective problem-solving, enabling organizations to overcome challenges collectively.
