Have you ever heard the tale of the terrifying sabertooth?  Well of course you have! Not only have you heard the story, but you've also probably lived it. 

Tracey Grove, a high-performance executive coach who specializes in leadership effectiveness and resilience, stepped into Purpose Lounge to share practical steps and insights to achieve resilient leadership in today's stressed out, and fear-based culture and society.

In Tracey's book, "Taming the Sabertooth: Resilient Leadership in a Stressful World," we are asked to reflect on major topics and themes surrounding trauma and stress, and to measure our own levels of resilience.  

The story began with a defining moment that occurred on May 21, 1998, when Tracey and her husband were carjacked near their home in South Africa.  In one single event that for others resulted in the loss of life, for reasons speculated but really unknown, Tracey and her husband were released. As a survivor, Tracey has been focusing her life's work on helping others, particularly leaders, to thrive (not just survive) in a world that is highly charged, ever-changing and let's face it, fairly traumatic.  

Highlights from this episode:

  • How to build high performing teams
  • Understanding the importance of stress and how to deal with it
  • Flexing your self-awareness muscle and identifying triggers that take you off your resilient path
  • Ways to maintain balance to be healthy and feel good through gratitude 
  • Empathy and courage...the impacts on leadership and ways to harness these attributes 
  • Moving through fear; and my favorite chapter in her book, "Feel the fear, and do it anyway."
  • Nurturing recovery ... all the ways to do it. 
  • Shifting the mindset from negativity to positivity
