What makes leadership resilience during a time of crisis?
Join us at TEDxResilienceShift to launch the Resilient Leadership: Learning from Crisis report featuring the inspiring lessons learned and emerging insights from the Resilient Leadership project. The virtual launch will take place on Wednesday 14 October 16.00-17.00 BST (GMT +1).
This report focuses on the role of leadership for resilience – leadership that promotes and enables complex systems (in this case corporations and large cities) to function and thrive in the face of a major crisis. Resilience is the ability to withstand, adapt to changing conditions, and recover positively from shocks and stresses. This applies […]
As part of our mission to understand what resilience means in practice, we are sharing the emerging insights into resilient leadership, distilled from the first eight weeks of interviews with our twelve participants.
“We became human around a fire at night”, said Peter Willis, as we talked with him about the power of reflective learning. “Conversation is more primitive than we think”. Peter is interviewing senior leaders each week over 16 weeks to capture their reflective learning.
Honest reflections help us to learn from crisis and become better and more resilient leaders. Whether Cape Town’s Day Zero retrospectively, or now Covid-19 in real-time, when we’ve shared these reflections, the response has been phenomenal. People can learn, in a more dynamic way, to gain insight on what matters for resilience.
A new initiative by The Resilience Shift, in partnership with the Global Resilient Cities Network, is shining the light on resilient leadership, capturing the reflections of 12 globally diverse senior leaders faced with the challenges of the coronavirus crisis.
“We can’t know every single piece of the puzzle, but at least we have to have a very good sense of what those pieces look like, how we will make them fit together as much as possible, before committing ourselves to any level of public communication.”
