Ensuring Lasting Success in Challenging Leadership Environments

Nothing Will Knock You Off Your Feet? You, as a leader, are expected to organize, make decisions, and guide people in order to lead your business down the road to success. This entails a lot of creative leeway and satisfaction, but also a significant amount of pressure: The rhythm of your life is determined by a jam-packed day planner, numerous business trips, and very little time actually at your disposal. The responsibility for the company and its employees often turns into a heavy burden.


For this reason, resilience has become a new hallmark for today’s leaders. The term refers to the ability of people to deal constructively with pressures, changes, and crises, to maintain their capacity to act, and eventually even to emerge from adversity with renewed vigor. Part of this ability is hardwired, but much of it can be acquired. After extensive research, we have developed the “7 Spheres of Resilience,” which will be analyzed and dealt with individually and successively in the course of the coaching process.
