You as a Global Leader
" Be the change you want to see in the world."
~ Gandhi
To our network,

Yesterday we had the second in our series of online discussions called Personal Leadership in Challenging Times . This one was about Resilience . Thanks to all who joined us.

You can view the video of our Zoom call HERE .

There is a wonderful article about resilience in the NYTimes editorial section: On Coronavirus Lockdown? Look for Meaning, Not Happiness . Among other points, it talks about a study after 9/11 of distressed students. The study found that " some of them were less likely to become depressed than others. What set those resilient students apart was their ability to find the good. Unlike the less resilient students, the resilient reported experiencing more positive emotions, like love and gratitude."

It goes on to conclude that it is not adversity itself, but rather how people respond to it that leads to growth. It is the search for and finding of positive meaning, particularly personal meaning that matters.

Here is a LINK to that article.

On the lighter side (for those with young kids), Mary Werner has provided a resource called Lunch Time Doodles with Mo Willems LINK
