Resilience is vital in responding to the disruptive change characteristic of contemporary business, enabling a sustained focus on outcomes, enhanced productivity and making leadership visible. But is simply being resilient enough? Is it really that useful or inspiring to just be resilient?
It’s a word that is often bandied about in business journals, and there’s no disputing the need for an organisation to quickly adapt to disruptions while maintaining business operations. However, at Blackswan we’ve been looking at going ‘beyond resilience’.
We believe that while resilience is a respectable and necessary skill set in today’s volatile and complex world, there are skills that take leaders beyond a static state of resilience and into a more progressive and ambitious mode of operation.
Over the last 15 years we have worked with thousands of leaders in organisations across the globe in taking this important extra step.
Although we work globally, we have our roots in the North East, and we are keen to share our expertise and a selection of business support tools that we have refined over recent years with organisations on our doorstep.
To this end we will be showcasing two of our experts at a free ‘Beyond Resilience’ breakfast event on Wednesday, October 12, from 8.30am to 11am, at Motel One in Newcastle.
Our CEO Maurice Duffy will deliver a bite size workshop on New Mindsets for New Times, and will be joined by Rebecca Stephens, the first British woman to climb Everest, who will deliver a session on Political Savvy.
