"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change."

Those people who are familiar with our work know that we write quite a lot about the pace of change in our global business environment. It is continual, it is unrelenting, and it appears to be accelerating.
We cannot slow the pace of change, so do we give up? Throw our hands up and succumb to the tidal wave of knowledge that we are adrift and rudderless? And if not, what can we do to make our people and our organizations more resilient in the face of this ongoing pressure?
"Resilience: an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change."
- Merriam-Webster Dictionary
