To summarise the Resilient Leader programme ran by the Institute for OD, I would say the programme gave me the key to a door and the option to open that door and walk through. It provided me with a personal reflectiveness, which has benefitted my personal and professional life. The programme has shown me the benefit of resilience and mental toughness when achieving my professional objectives as well as looking at my personal well-being. It is a fantastic programme, I would highly recommend it. If you have the opportunity to take some time out, go to the Institute and take a look
