A very practical approach to becoming antifragile

Inner Leadership provides a practical set of exercises that you can use to build the seven skills that will make you antifragile:

  1. Connect more deeply with who you are at your best
  2. Make clearer sense of what is happening
  3. Find more ways to move forward
  4. Choose the way forward that is best for you
  5. Understand how that aligns with your purpose and values, giving yourself extra energy and adaptability 
  6. Describe your chosen way forward in a way that inspires you (and the people around you) to long to make it happen
  7. Maintain your inspiration and momentum as you move forward, by managing the transitions that will inevitably arise

These daily blogs are bringing you some but not all of these tools.

And in the same way that you cannot learn to swim just by reading a book about swimming, so you cannot become antifragile just by reading these blogs: you also have to practice the tools and exercises.

To make this easier, Inner Leadership comes with a free downloadable electronic workbook and there’s also a large format paperback workbook that you can buy. Or you can just use pencil and paper.

You probably know the old joke: “How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” “Practice!”

Inner Leadership gives you a very practical set of tools that will enable you to define what ‘Carnegie Hall’ looks like for you and bring you the inspiration that will take you there. But you also have to do the practice

Do you know what your equivalent of Carnegie Hall looks like? Are you willing to practise the skills that will take you there? Would you like to?

Adapted from Inner Leadership: a framework and tools for building inspiration in times of change.

(And remember: you can’t learn to swim just by reading about swimming, you also need to do the practice.)
