Q.: What is Resilience?

A.: Resilience is the capacity to experience massive challenge or change, yet still maintain the integrity of the original. It is the ability to snap back from challenges which seem initially to be overwhelming and to face them down with a sense of determined belief that one can adapt, find creative solutions and ultimately come through them to a successful resolution.

Q.: How Can I Boost my Resilience?

A.: Begin with the end in mind. What is your legacy? When you look back on your life, will you experience a rich sense of fulfillment, or will you want a second chance? Do you have a clear sense of purpose and vision in your life? Do you use your best business thinking, not only to ensure excellence of results at work, but also to ensure your long term sense of happiness and fulfillment in life?

Each year, Clayton Christensen (leading Harvard theorist and author of the Innovator's Dilemma) speaks to Harvard's MBA graduates. He encourages the students to ask themselves three questions:

1. How can I be sure I'll be happy in my career?
2. How can I be sure that my relationships with my spouse and my family become an enduring source of happiness?
3. How can I be sure that I will stay out of jail?
These are not easy questions to answer. They are often ignored in the complexity and stress of every day life; yet, they are critical, because they underpin and guide all we do.

Q.: How Can I Engage and Motivate Others?

A.: Engaging others begins with understanding what's really important to them -- where their passions lie, what their goals and priorities include and, for those whom you coach and mentor, how their purpose in life may be linked with the work they do.

Today more than ever, engagement and motivation are generated as we experience the opportunity to learn, grow in responsibilities, contribute to others and be recognized for our achievements. By stepping back and reflecting on our own motivators, and those of others around us, we can begin to separate the chaff from the grain; apply more and more of our strengths to our most important goals and targets in life -- both at work and at home. As we do so, we experience a rich sense of success and fulfillment in all we do.
