“We live in uncertain and adversity-rich times. This requires leaders to possess and lead with exceptional grit and resilience to produce impressive results in such challenging contexts.” --Dr. Paul G. Stoltz, author, Adversity Quotient*
To have resilience and exceptional grit at an individual level is certainly important. In a leadership position, and quite frankly in any position, the ability to inspire people rather than ostracize them while you are being “gritty” is truly a challenge for most. Leading with GRIT - generosity, respect, integrity and truth - provides the framework and tools to help others step up, take ownership, work as a team and get results.
As leaders (whether you are leading yourself, your children, a team, or influencing your peers), it starts with us, and our ability to look inside. Take a moment to self reflect - one of the most important leadership activities. Assess your own GRIT to see where it might benefit you to focus some energy. Click here for the Free GRIT Assessment.
