Episode 46 | Resilient Leadership with Whitney Johnson

Resilience has been a watch word for leaders and their teams during the disruption caused by the pandemic. With our IMI-CUBS Organisational Resilience Survey revealing that 86% of leaders felt their organisation responded ‘well’ or ‘very well’ to the pandemic, this week on the podcast we will go deeper on that topic with National Management Conference keynote speaker, Whitney Johnson. 

According to Whitney, building resilient teams and organisations starts with the individual. Through her Personal Disruption Framework and S-Curve of Learning, in this episode Whitney explains how leaders can become more comfortable taking the right risks, boost their ‘return on achievement’ and deal with ambiguity.  

Whitney Johnson is the CEO of human capital consultancy WLJ Advisors and is one of the 50 leading business thinkers in the world as named by Thinkers50. An innovation and disruption theorist, she is the best-selling author of the books Build an A-Team and Disrupt Yourself. 

This conversation was recorded on 7th October, 2021.
