Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) April 14, 2015
In leadership terms, resilience is the ability to adapt in the face of multiple concurrent changes while continuing to persevere toward meeting strategic goals. In this very dynamic work environment, leaders, employees, and organizations must be resilient to accommodate swift and continual change.
In 2001, Ray Kurzweil, renowned technology forecaster and director of engineering at Google, predicted that at the comparative rate for technological change, the twenty-first century will experience twenty thousand times more technological change than did the twentieth century, accelerating techno-economic evolution beyond the ability to reliably forecast. With technological change comes organizational change. Gone are the days where change happened in sequence.
Resilience is a key determinant of success, and a hot topics people try to figure out how to bend with the winds of economic change without breaking. The challenge is how to develop resilience or renew energy when it begins to wane. Because, despite the need for it and being flexible does take energy.
