In this episode of Career Can Do, Mary Ann Faremouth chats with Liz Kislik, management consultant, executive coach, and President of Liz Kislik Associates. A frequent contributor to Harvard Business Review, TEDx and Forbes, Liz has helped family-run businesses, national nonprofits, and Fortune 500 companies solve their most challenging problems for 30 years. Liz discusses growth, resilience, and how changing your mindset affects the workplace.
You can learn a lot by observing what’s happening around you, says Liz, even if you are not taking action. It’s important that you understand your surrounding landscape before you try to change it. The way people behave has a lot to do with their environment, so to make a significant, lasting impact, you need to identify situational factors in addition to individual behaviors.
Resilience is a necessary variable for growth. Rather than products of our circumstances, we are products of our decisions - things can happen to us, but what matters is what we do about it. There are two types of resilience: one is when we decide to take action over external things we can still control, and the other is when we accept the things not within our control and keep moving forward anyway.
