Psychologist, coach, author and speaker Dr Darryl Cross joins Mindshop's Managing Director James Mason to discuss how advisors and their clients can build resilience to succeed in both their personal and professional lives. Dr Cross is a clinical and organisational psychologist with a career spanning government and academic roles, he subsequently established a private practise to deliver management consulting to help leaders, individuals and family businesses.
In an uncertain, volatile world full of stresses, now compounded by a global pandemic, resilience has never been so vital. Dr Cross discusses how adapting well in the face of adversity, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress can give the mental toughness to see through bad times and provide energy to others. Leaders especially need resilience to show teams they are coping in the face of adversity and can lead the way. In turn, advisors need to build resilience to deliver energy and practical advice to these leaders, becoming a trusted 'sidekick' in tough times.
Dr Cross provides three essential tips to address attributes that could be holding you back, to build resilience levels and be a better leader or advisor.
