“Resilience is very different than being numb. Resilience means you experience, you feel, you fail, you hurt. You fall. But, you keep going.”― Yasmin Mogahed
In this episode of Pathfinders, we talk about what it takes to build a strong, successful and resilient team. A team that is productive, understands each others strengths and has empathy towards one another. Yes, that is possible to achieve but only when the leader of the team puts aside their technical affinity, their personal ambitions and their need for the spotlight and makes taking care of YOU their number one priority.
