Staying Ahead of the Game with the Resilient Leader's Toolkit

A resilient leader knows where they are strong, their areas for development, what takes them from pressure to stress and how to rebalance. They find ways through uncertainty, change and even crisis by having confidence in who they are and what they do. They create, build and take opportunities, bouncing back from adversity. Anna will explore the Resilient Leaders Elements Model and bring this to life using her journey as an Olympic athlete, world champion, entrepreneur and expert in the field of resilience to reveal the behaviours, actions and strategies that leaders need to be resilient and have impact. Audiences will learn: a. The importance of clarity of direction and how to create a unifying purpose, b. How to develop leadership presence so you can have impact and build strong relationships, c. How to engage and motivate teams by understanding what drives us and others in our teams, d. Strategies for resilient decision making and thinking correctly under pressure, e. How to build the confidence to navigate through uncertainty and change.
