Build Your Resilience, Pivot Your Life
How do we cope and thrive in the unprecedented new world we now find ourselves in? The answer, says bestselling author and international keynote speaker Adam Markel, is to take the time now to build the resilience we need to power us through the challenges we face.
Bestselling author, keynote speaker, and resilience expert Adam Markel inspires leaders to tap the power of resilience to meet the challenges of massive disruption — for themselves and their organizations.
“Times like these require us to cultivate and practice greater levels of resilience and self-care,” says Adam, author of the #1 Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, and Publisher’s Weekly bestseller, “Pivot: The Art & Science of Reinventing Your Career and Life.”
“It means doubling down on your resilience rituals, committing at a deeper level to show up for yourself (mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually) and to fully utilize and embrace the unique opportunities that are in front of you.”
As a leading international keynote speaker, Adam has inspired tens of thousands worldwide with his message of resilience as the competitive edge in today’s complex markets. Today he is motivating leaders and organizations to tap the power of resilience to thrive through the massive disruption we now face.
The global coronavirus pandemic has left people feeling afraid, uncertain, stuck, and even paralyzed from taking the action they need to take. This upheaval also presents opportunities for self-reflection, self-care and attention to relationships — as well as new ways of doing business, generating revenue, and building stronger teams. To do this, Adam calls us all to embrace three words: “Got your back.”
“More than anything at this moment we all have an opportunity to be leaders — to step forward and step out of the fear and the fog of uncertainty we are each dealing with individually in our livelihoods and collectively as a society,” he says.
Adam defines resilience as “the ability to thrive regardless of what may be happening in your environment. When you’re resilient, you’re more able to effectively utilize change, manage your energy, and widen your field of awareness so you can see all your options and create solutions.”
Through research into resilience, Adam identified what he calls the four quadrants of holistic resilience: mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual, which he defines as being aligned with your purpose.
“People who are more aligned with their values and purpose are more resilient,” Adam says. “The moment we are now in presents us each with an opportunity to find, connect with and align with our purpose.”
Building resilience in all four areas helps individuals and businesses recharge and boost their capacity to take on any challenge they face. Take Adam’s Resilient Leader Assessment here.
