Today, disruption and change are constants.
Whether it’s a shift in organisational structure, the creation and adoption of new technology, an increased pace of work or developing a new strategy after a project set-back, change in the workplace takes on many forms.
Given the frequency and diversity of business change, it’s easy to see why resilience and adaptability are required by organisations across all industries in Australia.
Kerryn Fewster is the founder and director of Change2020, a collective of change consultants who help organisations develop sustainable strategy and clarity of vision in times of change. In a recent presentation addressing why resilience is critical for today’s leaders, she noted the vital role they play in building and fostering resilience in their teams.
“Leaders today must not only build new and different capabilities, but actively manage their capacity for exercising leadership. Developing resilience to handle complexity is not a luxury, but a strategic advantage for both individuals and organisations,” she says.
