Some Perspectives on Resilience

Community of Practice

Diane L. Coutu:How Resilience Works

She observed that all the theories on resilience overlapped in three ways:

  • Facing down reality
  • A deep belief often buttressing strong values that life is meaningful
  • An uncanny ability to improvise

Tactics for resilient leadership

  • Think options - not solutions
  • Learn to value “not knowing”- it’s ok to say I don’t know. Help make sense of uncertainty rather than trying to make it clear
  • Embrace ambiguity - expect and be ready for the unexpected
Reconnect with your personal anchor – keep caring the things that matter - find your personal way of maintaining perspective
  • Get frequent support from those you trust
  • Avoid feeling overwhelmed
  • Make conscious and deliberate choices

A Final Thought –Keith GrintLeadership and Resilience Research Report
  • There are good reasons to consider that mental toughness is a critical component of success.
  • Resilience might also generate a defence mechanism that facilitates the avoidance of responsibility and denial of choice when faced with difficult decisions.
  • It could facilitate an addiction to Command and an allergy to Leadership.
  • We need wisdom to know when to be resilient and when to recognise that resilience is the problem, not the solution .
