Resiliency is a word that keeps coming up, particularly in leadership training. An entrepreneurial mindset is now something senior leaders are expected to have. But entrepreneurs tend to work 24/7 and that’s just not sustainable over time. So how can we stay fully engaged throughout our careers and avoid burnout at the same time?
I recently graphic recorded a session led by The Leadership Foundry. They suggest 4 principals towards full engagement to help manage energy and build resilience:
1) Be mindful of the 4 sources of energy: Body, Heart, Mind and Spirit.
2) Balance expenditure with renewal.
3) Push beyond your comfort zone and cultivate a growth mindset.
4) Develop positive rituals.
They also suggest that cultivating strong personal and professional relationships is key to overcoming challenges.
