Leading Through Adversity…

No one enjoys adversity, but how we view adversity and lead through it makes a difference. Health, family, financial, and hundreds of other challenges cause us to reflect on who we are, why we are here, and how we will endure.

Walt Disney said, “All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me… You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.”

There are times when adversity is beneficial. Leaders who understand this are better equipped to help others when they face adversity.

A Strong Leader…

Leaders will always encounter times of discouragement, but how do we survive and grow stronger?

Here a few suggestions to consider.

To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
Focus on one area at a time.
Learn the value of knowing when to walk away.
Seek counsel with other survivors.
Remember to seek the good in all situations
.

Leaders cannot avoid, ignore, or ever neglect adversity. Instead, learn how to survive the fallout when adversity exists and become a stronger leader.
