Cultivating Resilience and Unlocking Leadership Potential

By Karla Schlaepfer

How resilient leaders navigate conflicts and build habits

🌟 Welcome DesignChange Community,

This month, we’re diving into essential strategies and insights to help you increase resilience in your personal and professional lives.

I’ll begin with a practical 3-step tool for constructively dealing with conflicts, followed by an in-depth article (DE) for conflict resolution.

While researching approaches to conflicts, I came across this:

“You may be given a catus🌵, but you don’t have to sit on it!” 😜

I’m continually learning from my clients🤗 Here a topic that often emerges; what is a female leadership style? Power to introverts? More below. Another; the surprising importance of small talk for human connection. We’ll also highlight a bestselling book and a new app for creating long-term habits.

Why executive coaching with me can be a game-changer for you and your team, you can ask my chatbot on:

Ready, set go!

Book of the Month

Atomic Habits by James Clear

Atomic Habits explores the power of small, incremental changes in behavior to build better habits and break bad ones. He emphasizes the importance of focusing on systems rather than goals, arguing that tiny habits, when consistently practiced, can lead to remarkable long-term results. The book introduces the four laws of behavior change: make it obvious, make it attractive, make it easy, and make it satisfying. Clear also delves into the science of habit formation. Ultimately, the book is a guide to understanding and using the compound effect of daily habits to achieve lasting personal and professional growth. I can highly recommend it 👏🏻

There is also a new official companion app for “Atomic Habits” called Atoms. It is designed to help users build better habits, track progress, and make lasting changes.

“If you’re having trouble sticking to a new habit, try a smaller version until it becomes automatic. Do less than you’re capable of but do it more consistently than you have before.”
