As a leader, how effective are you in overcoming adversity?
How a leader responds to adversity reveals how effective that leader is. Reactions to setbacks or crises not only test leadership character, they define it.
Some difficulties are devastating, and unfortunately, they are compounded by leadership responses. There’s no real training for adversity on the leadership ladder, except experience. A leader who doesn’t effectively deal with a trial will succumb to it. The rest of the organization won’t be far behind.
Leaders can prevent this. There are specific methods that can defuse setbacks, allow subsequent crises to be more manageable, and make leaders stronger. Leaders can learn to conquer setbacks by using simple, logical steps to make their way through each difficulty.
With the right approach, setbacks can provide advantages that would not have been possible otherwise. Leaders with these skills will weather any storm, regardless of its cause.
This article explores leadership responses to crisis and setbacks and suggests steps leaders can take to overcome adversity and become more effective leaders.
