ABOUT RESILIENT LEADERS ELEMENTS (RLE™)
THE ORIGINS OF RLE™
Motivated by the paralysing affect the London bombings had on the people involved, we began our work on resilience in leadership in the 1990s.
The majority of organisations focused their contingency planning on systems, processes and infrastructure with little attention to preparing their people for the impact of such events.
We decided to change that.
In the 1990s, 40% of the 11,500 firms regulated by the FSA had no disaster recovery or back up systems in place. Where they did, it was almost entirely in infrastructure or IT.
RESILIENT LEADERS ELEMENTS™
By bringing together a group of experienced leaders from diverse backgrounds, we set out to understand what it took to recover from such serious incidents and used our findings to create pragmatic tools and techniques that would help leaders prepare for, cope with and recover from such events.
We focused our attention on the impact on people and the human responses that contributed to successful recovery - relating it not just to disaster scenarios but also to the day-to-day challenges faced by leaders.
RLE™ creates a sustainable way of living and working:
Created by leaders for leaders
Pragmatic and user friendly
Creates environments for success
Measurable and proven
Almost 30 years on, a great many things have changed, not least the pace of change. Consequently, the need for resilient leaders, able to thrive in uncertain times is greater than ever.
Thousands of leaders have grown greater resilience thanks to the Resilient Leaders Development Programme (RLDP™) and a global community of resilient leaders consultants accredited to work with individuals, teams and organisations.
Not surprisingly, in a world where data is king and evidence expected, we can prove the growth in leadership resilience through the RLE™ method.
