Resilience is one of the terms we are hearing most often these days…. Those organisations who have recently emerged from some of their most difficult years, are looking to build both strength and agility for their future.
But how can we balance the need for strength with the flexibility required for agility? And what are the capabilities that lead to becoming a resilient organisation?
Someone well placed to answer this question is Lynda Gratton, Professor of Management at London Business School, author of “The Shift” and founder of the Hot Spots Movement – now a global community of more than 500 leaders from 90 of the world’s most influential companies in the Future of Work Research (FoW) Consortium. Lynda was at IMI yesterday sharing insights from her new book “The Key – How Corporations Succeed by Solving the World’s Toughest Problems” We took the opportunity to ask her for her advice to business, in just six words.
