Resilience Mastery Reflection
After reading the chapters on resilience (pages 127â€“146), write your responses to the reflections questions on pages 145â€“146. Then answer how do you assess your ability to maintain balance in your life? What commitments and actions are needed in this area? Relate a story from your personal experience with a leader who lost balance. Did this leader experience health problems? Did he or she affect the health of employees, friends, or family? What happened to this leader’s sense of humor, relationships, or effectiveness? Why is this important area often overlooked? What are the beliefs that drive us toward obsessive behavior?
