Built to Adapt: Learning From 2020 to Build an Adaptive Organization in 2021

Built to Adapt – Learning From 2020 to Build an Adaptive Organization in 2021

On Demand

Duration: 1 hour

About the Webinar

In the ‘90s, the message was “Built to Last.” In the early 2000s, we were encouraged to be “Built to Change.” Emerging from 2020 with its unprecedented levels of disruption and uncertainty, leadership teams are advised to double-down on efforts to be “Built to Adapt,” to build their organization’s resilience to adapt to the ever-changing “new normal.”

During this webinar we’ll share an iterative process of anticipating challenges and opportunities, adapting to working and collaborating in new ways, and assessing through reviewing and reflecting on progress. An adaptive organization is able to continuously adjust to the ever-changing environment, and therefore increase its competitive advantage and potential for greater performance in an uncertain business world.

What You’ll Learn

In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • A process with corresponding practices for building organizational resilience;
  • Useful leadership actions to build the adaptive capacity of the organization; and
  • Tips for anticipating challenges and opportunities on the horizon.

Help your company become a more adaptive organization with customized leadership development tailored to your organization’s unique context and culture.
