Episode 66: Building Resilience in Your Life and Consulting Business—PART 1 with Sky Jarrett
In this Craft of Consulting podcast episode, I interview mindfulness and resiliency expert and transformational leadership coach Sky Jarrett, CEO of Transcend LLC.
In part 1 of this 2-part episode, she discusses what resiliency is and why it matters so much in your life and consulting business, especially now with so much uncertainty, and what techniques can lay the right foundation for having a store of resilience when you need it.
Coach Sky Jarrett shares how to build enough resiliency so you can weather adversity and thrive on the other side of difficulties in both your life and business. In this podcast, we talk about:
Understanding the impact of the volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) we are operating in now and likely well into the future
Tapping into and taking advantage of the opportunity for growth that's available to us
Thriving amidst the chaos as the key to defining resiliency
Choosing sustainable methods to address adversity rather than seeking false refuge
Cultivating resilience rather than trying to control everything
Choosing what "surfboard" you’ll use to ride the VUCA waves
Mastering your mind as a way to cultivate your resilience muscle and avoid catastrophizing
Getting past your assumptions and narratives so you don’t hold yourself back from success
Knowing where our go-to grenades are so you can learn to navigate around them
Embracing the “lifeiness” of life
Armoring up for when things go wrong rather than convincing yourself the worst is coming
