Leadership will always suffer times when adversity creates discouragement. How do leaders survive these times and grow stronger? Consider:
To be forewarned is to be forearmed. Knowing adversity will come helps in preparing beforehand.
Focus on an area of expertise. Discouragement is usually the result of feeling overwhelmed. Focus on one area at a time.
Learn the value of walking away. Sometimes taking a break from the situation and clearing your mind helps.
Seek counsel with other survivors. We can often better handle adversity in life through the encouragement of others.
Remember to seek the good in all situations. Never forget the lessons learned that benefit you as a leader.
