As a leader, it's easy to push yourself to the brink of exhaustion. Responding to challenges with brute force may be effective for a brief time, but this approach eventually wears you down and compromises your ability to function. Drawing on scientific research and practical experience at the Center for Creative Leadership, Resilience That Works: Eight Practices for Leadership and Life offers an alternative-a portfolio of eight resilience practices to keep you healthy, focused, and functioning effectively long before crisis arises. Filled with concrete and actionable advice, Resilience That Works guides you through personalized strategies for developing lasting resilience.
