Building up resilience

  • One of my managers that I really admired and considered a mentor died of cancer. I had to write a press release about this and organise a private event in his memory. It was devastating.
  • Some funds were cut off from a project I was managing. I had to readjust all the details from scratch. Team budget, logistics, service providers… all.
  • A fight began between two of my key teammates just a day before an essential phase of a project. I spent the night talking with them, and in the end, we succeeded together.
  • I had to fire a subordinate that was lazy and rude. I spent an entire night thinking on the way to communicate with empathy and offer alternative solutions.
