Resilience Is the R in GRIT

By Leanne Hoagland-Smith




In the movie True Grit, the old, one-eye sheriff, Rooster Cogburn, played by John Wayne was said to have “grit.”

This word grit described someone who had numerous qualities all working together such as:

• Backbone

• Courage

• Determination

• Endurance

• Guts

• Hardiness

• Perseverance

• Resolve

• Spirit

• Strength of character

• Strength of will

My sense is resilience is having the ability to recover from adversity without losing one’s self direction or increasing one’s stress is potentially the R in “GRIT.”

For those coaching executive leaders or seeking new leaders, identifying this internal and sometimes hidden talent is essential.
