In this talk, Simon will talk through what he sees as some of the core attributes for successfully resilient leadership, particularly in challenging times, including assertiveness, influencing skills, motivation, grit and resilience. He highlights the need for all leaders to work simultaneously on their mindset growth, leadership growth, organisational growth and brand growth to enable Strategic Serendipity- matching their capability with their and their organisation’s growth journey.
