Resilience has become a buzzword during these times of unprecedented turmoil. These days, adapting to a fast changing environment is a basic necessity. Especially for leaders. Many of us, have more questions than answers. Some leaders may have some answers. Many others don’t. And that can be lethal.


Gabriela Enrigue sorted through thousands of research papers on the topic, listened to some riveting stories and talked to the most inspiring leaders across the globe. She discovered that the topic of resilience covers up a far more complicated story than the media -or the mainstream public- ever gets to hear. What is resilience in action? Is it bouncing back stronger or pushing through adversity? If it’s bouncing back, how do we know if we are moving in the right direction or digging ourselves into a deeper hole? If we need to drive some resilience our way, where exactly do we get it? How much does it cost? Where is a good place to start? In season one of Resilience in Action, she looks for answers.
