Good day and welcome to the leading with nice daily. My name is Mathieu Yuill, and this week we’re looking at the resilient leader. Today I want to investigate just a little bit deeper as to what every resilient leader looks like and there’s many things, but I want to focus on one aspect in particular and it’s around change. Resilient leaders often are great with change and it’s because they do a few things that others don’t that don’t have the same level of resiliency. The first is they are bold risk-takers. Resilient leaders, I have a much easier time taking a risk and going forward. It’s because they look at their failures as learning opportunities. Pure and simple. They don’t judge themselves based on a failure. The next thing they do around change is they actually champion it. They get up in front of everybody, even if it’s not their idea and say, we’re going towards change.

It’s going to be exciting. Here’s what we can do. It takes courage and it requires vision, but resilient leaders have both of those things and if they don’t have it, they probably fake it. But either way, even if it’s not their idea, they champion change. And the third thing I wanted to talk about regarding change and resilient leaders, they signal their change. They get way out ahead of the change and let everybody know. A great analogy I heard is it’s like on the highway when you’re driving that driver who signals while in advance to let you know that they’re going to be moving into another lane. That’s what the resilient leader does. They signal their change well in advance.
