Build your own Resilient Leaders Toolkit

Anna Hemmings MBE OLY will share 4 top tips on how you can become a resilient leader

1. Clarity of Direction:

Having a vision and a realistic strategy for the future, communicating effectively to align people to your vision and having the determination to keep going in the face of adversity. This ensures that people know where they are going and why they are going there and this is motivational, particularly in the face of adversity.

2. Leadership Presence:

You have “presence” even when you’re not in the room – people know what you would say, what actions and decisions you would want them to make when you are not there; this could not be more crucial when teams are operating in a virtual world.

You have presence as a leader when you are clear on your values and this is demonstrated never more so than in times of crisis. Are you clear on your values, do you live them and allow them to guide your actions and inform your decisions?

3. Awareness:

Developing awareness of yourself and other’s strengths, areas of development and motives as well as an understanding of what takes you and your team from pressure to stress and how to rebalance. With this awareness, everyone, including you, works at their best, resulting in higher productivity and motivation through challenging times

4. Resilient Decision Making:

When you build the skills for resilient decision making you will make the right decision, at the right time, with the right people in the right place. Your decision making will be creative, robust and versatile and you will have the best chance of making good decisions under pressure.
