Coaching Resilience


Today’s managers, teams and leaders are stretched almost beyond endurance by pressures for ruthless efficiency and productivity gains.

And we all know that pressure is not going to stop. Resistance is futile!

Resilience, however, is key. “Resilience” is the ability to react and respond to pressures in flexible ways and to recover from those pressures.

So how do we coach Resilience?

Emotional Intelligence—the EQ-i assessment specifically—offers a powerful tool which give us “handles” on an individual’s Resilience: where it is strong, why it might be lacking, and what specific actions might help address any Resilience deficit.

Hile Rutledge (President of OKA, the USA’s leading EQ training and consulting organization) will discuss using EQ tools to understand and boost emotional and social Resilience with the coaching process  during his guest appearance on “The Coaching Show” on June 4 at 11:30am EST.

  • “Resilience” is such a buzz-word these days. Why?
