Cultivating Emotional Resiliency

Leadership is about orchestrating our people to coordinate actions toward a shared vision. How we speak our intentions to those around us can have either positive or negative impact to achieve our goals.

This week on the show, we’re talking about emotional resiliency, a rarely discussed construct for education leaders. Learning how to show up as emotionally resilient is the backbone to navigating uncertainty and leading others to a future that addresses the concerns of those we serve. Resiliency includes orchestrating mood and developing a discipline to speak and listen with clarity and conviction.

Our conversation this week is just a peek through the door. For a deeper dive, make sure to see Howard’s presentation, Leadership without losing your mind! — Emotional Resiliency and High Performance Leadership, at the EACUBO 2018 Annual Meeting in Buffalo this weekend.
