Abstract

This article suggests we all have leadership potential within us (our inner Throgmartin). Unlocking and cultivating that potential requires acquiring leadership knowledge, perfecting leadership skills, and developing a leadership style that fits best with one's personality and role (director, manager, volunteer). This article looks at sources of empowerment available to leaders and the sources of stress in leadership. The keys to achieving and sustaining resilient, healthy leaders, particularly in difficult times, are discussed. The article suggests resilient leadership lies with work and home life integration, and networking with other leaders.
