Turning challenges into opportunities: leadership and resilience

Now, imagine how this concept could apply and completely transform the way you work, I would call this: resilient leadership, which also implies listening, analyzing, acting and learning. This practice sounds simple, but what is really difficult is applying it in a moment of great stress. How to do it? trusting in himself, in his talent and the ability to make the right decision.

In addition, you as a leader will have to show yourself and your team that every challenge has a solution and that this is the perfect opportunity to prepare them, transform them and take them to a higher professional level, guide them positively.

Likewise, it is important to consider that resilience needs to be exercised through a purpose, one that benefits the greatest number of people and that also considers three fundamental principles: that it increases the positive social impact, that it reduces the environmental footprint generated and of course, that it does grow the business.

The foregoing, always putting the ethical values ​​that define each person, as well as those of the company to which each one belongs, first, transforming itself for the benefit of both employees, society and the environment.

This unusual year we are living in is the perfect time to practice resilient leadership. As we know, all companies and institutions in the world have had to reinvent themselves in the face of the crisis, and for those who have already developed this skill, they may come out stronger.

In this sense, resilience also allows us as leaders to apply and transfer what we have learned to any other future situation, enriching our experience, as well as giving a new perspective to how we see things.

For example, large industries that offer health, food, entertainment, communication services, among many others, had to adapt their sales cycle to the consumer, from the creation of their products and distribution, to the way they are offered.
