Faithful leadership calls for many things over the course of a day, the course of a week, and the course of a year. What might it look like for men and women to be resilient leaders through seasons of change? Join Joanna Meyer and Jeff Hoffmeyer as they talk with Tod Bolsinger, founder and principal of AE Sloan Leadership, a consulting and executive coaching firm, as they discuss leadership and his most recent book, "Tempered Resilience: How Leaders Are Formed in the Crucible of Change".


On resilience:

"What resilience is, is your capacity to keep going. Andrew Zolli defines it as, 'maintaining core purpose and integrity in the face of dramatically changing circumstances."

On having a growth mindset:

"The difference between those who succeed in a rapidly changing world and those who don't are mostly based on people who have a growth mindset. Do you believe you can keep growing? The way you keep growing usually is through experiencing something that at one level didn't turn out the way you expected it to."

On leaders living in relationship:

"You need to have partners, you need to have mentors, and you need to have friends." You need people in all three categories."
