When you meet with someone whose professional title is “Chief Energy Officer,” you know you’re dealing with a person who’s tough to keep down. Eileen McDargh has made a career out of helping people not just bounce back but bounce upward and onward. In the #LeadersRead featured book for April, Your Resiliency GPS: A Guide for Growing through Life and Work, Eileen says that bouncing back “works for tennis balls” but not for humans. Instead, she talks about the need for “true resilience … the ability to grow forward through challenge or opportunity, becoming wiser, smarter, stronger, and better able to create a sustainable future.”
Eileen has been helping people dig down deep and making improvements in their personal and professional lives through her books, classes and keynotes, and in her CloseUp, she discusses how she draws upon energy for resilience in her own life through a very active approach. As she says, “Action is the antidote for anxiety. Agility is about mental, emotional, and physical hardiness.”
Now, it’s time for Eileen’s CloseUp.
