“That which does not kill us, makes us stronger,” so said the German philosopher Frederick Nietsche. Its a great quote, but I have to say that it is not necessarily automatic! As I have got older I have found my need for resilience has grown greater. And I am convinced that experience is not unique to me. Developing resilience in a world that is getting increasingly volatile, unpredictable, complex and ambiguous is an important life skill for anyone anywhere at any age.
The need to master change, thrive under pressure and bounce back from setbacks is something we all need to continue to develop and grow in to handle the ever increasing complexity life can throw at us.
On this podcast do join my co-host Andrew Horton and myself as we discuss:
- What do we mean by the word resilience and why do we really need it.
- The dangers of a lack of resilience.
- 8 principles that can affect your level of resiliency.

Andrew and I also discuss personal challenges and setbacks, as well as strategies and thinking patterns we have found helpful and unhelpful.
What have you found helpful in your own life in developing your own resilience?
