Building Mental Tenacity and Resilience

The most important skill leaders need is to develop is the ability to stay healthy – physically, mentally, spiritually.

Leaders need to find a way to cope with all the internal and external pressures of life, and stay healthy. Leaders need mental tenacity and resilience to persevere sustainably over the next decade. Research by Angela Duckworth in her book “Grit”, emphasises the importance of hard work, dedication, and discipline, against the odds. Talent and Strengths are important, but they are overrated. The future belongs to those who put in the effort, who stay the course, who escapes their private victimhood and who stay consistent in their work ethic.

Unfortunately, we live in a reality where many have bought into lifestyles of comfort, boundless options and low commitment. We believe the good life should be easy and without the necessary sacrifice. Therefore it is not surprising that we have unprecedented levels of anxiety, depression, stress and the so-called diseases of distress. Today, teenagers have the same anxiety levels of patients in mental institutions had in the 1960’s and experts predict that the biggest killer over the next century will be stress and anxiety.

Building Mental Tenacity & Resilience is a two-day workshop that offers teams insights and practices to engage with the challenges of a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world in a healthy way.
