When you are challenged as a leader, what resources do you draw on?
"In the midst of tough times, just believing in yourself isn't necessarily enough to get you through adversity in a healthy way. You need another building block to lean heavily on: 'I have the resources available to support me.' "
"Reaching out for support is not a sign of a personal weakness that you can't take care of things by yourself. Believing that you have the resources to draw upon is a sign of strength."
