Leadership will always suffer times where difficulties create discouragement. How do leaders survive these times and grow stronger as leaders?
Here a few suggestions to consider.
To be forewarned is to be forearmed. Knowing adversity will come helps to prepare.
Focus on an area of expertise. We might phrase it more accurately, “One at a time.”
Learn the value of walking away. There are times when taking a break helps.
Seek counsel with other survivors. The experience of others can provide encouragement.
Remember to seek the good in all situations. Sometimes easier said than done, but helpful.
Learning how to survive when adversity exists makes leaders stronger.
