From time to time we will feature interesting content from someone we know and/or work with. Dominique Stillman is a specialist in Leadership Development and Neuroscience. She helps people to understand their responses to stressful situations in the workplace. She teaches them techniques to change the brain’s and body’s response to become more calm when facing pressure situations. Dominique is a champion of brain health in the workplace.
Drawing on content from Bill Gates, she says there are five characteristics of mentally resilient business leaders. They are:
- Learn to say no
- Embrace criticism
- Possess an optimistic outlook
- Remain goal focussed
- Have a willingness to fail
Mental toughness is a skill that can be trained-into the brain. The results can be amazing. The individual breaks free from the shackles holding back their ability to try things. This gives a renewed sense of confidence and purpose and an employer gains as a consequence.
