Building Emotional Resilience In The Workplace

Is there a more stressful job than leading a team of people? Maybe it’s leading a group of people who don’t want to align, chase the vision of your organization, or lack the motivation to finish their work.

Leadership is stressful. You’re taxed to the max. Sometimes, you feel like you’re at your breaking point. Especially with the last few years of the COVID-19 pandemic and the following labor shortage.

What’s a leader to do? You’ve got to build up your emotional resilience.
