Conversation with Dr Lynda Folan, Author of "Leader Resilience: The NEW Frontier of Leadership"

  • Tuesday, December 14, 2021
  • 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
  • Zoom


How do you effectively support and lead others through troubled times? What makes a transformational leader? Are great leaders born or made? 

From years of working with people, teams and organisations across the globe and researching what makes an effective leader thrive, Dr Lynda Folan, defines a new way of conceptualising leadership in her book "Leader Resilience: The NEW Frontier of Leadership"

Perth-based Lynda will join The Centre for Optimism via Zoom on 14 December Australian time and 13 December Americas.

Some of our Favourite Passages from the Book: 

“The sky is the limit, but it all starts with you. As a leader, you must decide to enhance your ability to bounce back and remain optimistic in order to ensure that you can consistently deliver a transformational leadership style to your team and to your organisation. So, the key question is: how do I go about developing my leadership?” 

"We now know that optimism, a construct closely aligned to resilience, has a positive impact on general success at work." “

"Be selective on who and what you give your time and energy to—if you want to develop optimism, surrounding yourself with people that are optimistic is important, as is exposing yourself to environments that support optimism.” 

“While pressure is present for everyone, stress is a result of how an individual perceives a particular situation or set of pressures; it is not the situation itself. Individuals who have truly learned this and built their resilience to a sustainable level find a way to process pressure so that it does not turn into stress. These individuals take the sunshine with them; they remain optimistic even in the most challenging contexts.”
