At the BSR Conference 2015, we sat down with plenary speakers and sustainability thought leaders to discuss resilience in their organizations and what defines resilient leadership.

Pascal Finette, the managing director of Singularity University Labs in Silicon Valley, spoke with us about how resilience is at the core of the startup experience.

Finette emphasized that businesses should be comfortable with failure and built to bounce back quickly. Resilient leaders embed this virtue in their own world views and create a work environment that allows employees to explore, operate, and fail in a non-threatening way.

“Creating this environment—creating this resilience mindset in your employees, the people you work with, the people you inspire—is incredibly important, especially in the world we are now living in, which is incredibly fast-moving and changes basically day to day,” said Finette.
