Wednesday 5 May:

Topic: How to tame the uncertainty and build organizational and individual resilience to face the constant and rapid changes

Resilience is not the survival of the strongest but survival of the fittest, large or small! It is increasingly important for individuals and organizations to anticipate, prepare for, respond and adapt to incremental change and sudden disruptions in order to survive and prosper. Why resilience is important? What are the behaviors that make someone resilient? How to turn disruptive changes into growth opportunities? How to cultivate individual and organizational culture of resilience in post covid-19?
