The shaping of a Leader

My friend Cheryl Zwarkowski who completed here fifth Bad Water race across Death Valley in California, USA over a distance of 135 miles, wrote in a post: “… we got through a couple valleys “out there” – this made me think.

Looking at my own experience in Long Distance Running and my life under duress, I would interpret Cheryl’s statement as such: “The valleys are numerous. Either physical shaped by nature that created the mountains. Then the Emotional valleys are the ups and downs of our feelings coming from the elements like weather and climate we are exposed to. Our physic is also experiencing the passing through valleys as the long duration of strains is challenging our muscle, skeletal and cardiovascular system. And last but not least our mind and the physiognomy has constantly to prove it’s toughness not to give up. If we manage to overcome all those valleys at the same time, we have proven our high level of capacity we bear in us. I sum It usually into the simple word of “Mental Endurance“.  The ability not to give up as soon we face a challenge.

 

Question: How can Corporations build “Mental Endurance” for their key staff?
