Developing Agility & Resilience in the Core of Your Organization
BetterUp’s Chief Programs Officer, Dr. Damian Vaughn, recently joined our VP of Marketing, Mark Horton, for a fireside chat to discuss ways organizations can develop agile leaders that can adapt, innovate, and motivate their teams.
A few soundbites from the fireside chat:
- On modern work: “Today an organization is like a ship, navigating itself not only through rough waters, but in the middle of a hurricane. Forces of change are coming faster and there’s a strong need for organizational resilience.”
- On the source of competitive advantage: “Agility has become the key source of competitive advantage. It’s about redirecting our resources to sustain competitive advantage.”
- On uncertainty: “We are in an era of deep uncertainty: we don’t know where the forces of change will come from.”
- On the new model of leadership: “Dynamic teams require a new model of leadership, with awareness and ability to respond to customer needs. Leadership has to develop a strong external orientation.”
