Resilient Women Educational Leaders in Turbulent Times: Applying the Leader Resilience Profile® to Assess Women's Leadership Strengths
Reed, Diane E.; Blaine, Bruce
Planning and Changing, v46 n3-4 p459-468 2015
Women leaders across the world confront a common challenge: extremely turbulent times that challenge even the most skillful leaders. The paper begins with a brief overview of the meaning of leader resilience and describes the resilience cycle that all leaders experience when adversity strikes. Five phases of the resilience cycle discussed are: normal conditions, deteriorating phase, adapting phase, recovering phase and growing phase. Next the paper traces the development of the revised Leader Resilience Profile® (LRP) data that compares and contrasts leader resilience by gender. The results clearly show that women are more resilient leaders and possess higher levels of LRP skills than men. The paper concludes by addressing two issues: How can the LRP be used across countries to assess women leader resilience and how can the LRP be applied to develop professional growth opportunities to strengthen women leaders' resilience.
