A resilient leader is a person who sees failures as temporary setbacks they can recover from quickly. They maintain a positive attitude and a strong sense of opportunity during periods of turbulence. When faced with ambiguity, a resilient leader finds ways to move forward and avoids getting stuck. It’s a skill you didn’t know you need until you really need it. In this episode, Joe Folkman shares research about the qualities of the most resilient leaders and how they became that way.
