  46. Additional Information

  47. Never Give Up “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. This approach to life has been responsible for the success of many men and women struggling against apparently insurmountable obstacles. Sometimes your greatest asset can be your ability to persist longer than the other person. Your willingness to continue, even when you feel like quitting, will often win you the day.

  48. Never Give Up (Cont) Between where you are and your goal, there are a number of hurdles or ‘tests’ that you must successfully pass to succeed. And you never know how many there are. You only know that number is limited and that at any time you might be just one step away from great achievement. Expect to meet many obstacles, difficulties, and temporary failures on the way to your goal. They are essential to your eventual success. You need them. They are each sent to teach you something vital that will help you in the future. You can never tell how close you are to your goal, right now (Tracy, 2003, p. 157-158).”1

  49. Resiliency “In today’s organizations, many leaders feel the stress to change and tend to cause stress for others. How do you handle stress? Can you bounce back? The coaching leader practices the attitude and behaviors of resiliency and coaches others to be resilient. A resilient leader is: Positive: views life as challenging but opportunity filled Focused: has a clear vision of what is to be achieved Flexible: is pliable when responding to uncertainty Organized: applies structures to help manage ambiguity Proactive: engages change instead of evading its results (Bianco-Mathis, Nabors, & Roman, 2002, p.29).”2
