About this episode:

“If you’re a leader, a fellow that other fellows look to, you’ve got to keep going” –  Ernest Shackleton

High performers do not fear failure.  They know they will make mistakes, and understand how they can share lessons learned to improve their team for the future. To build strong and confident organisations, great leaders require optimism, pragmatism and moral courage to ensure their teams are physically and mentally ‘fit to fly’ to the highest levels of operations.

In this episode, we cover:

  • Is resilience a superpower or can it be learned?
  • Do not fear of failure – learn from it and understand that it builds resilience.
  • Should the leader be the most resilient team member?
  • Why optimism is so important for leadership.
  • How building mental and physical resilience can help you to become a high performer.
