You’ve been there. That moment when the unexpected happens and your initial plans get completely altered due to a last-minute change. As a leader – whether you lead yourself, a small team or an entire organization – you have to prepare and adapt your behavior in order handle sudden changes that can have either a positive or negative impact.
In our upcoming tweetchat with Dr. Pamela Meyer, author of The Agility Shift: Creative Agile and Effective Leaders, Teams, and Organizations, you’ll learn what “the agility shift” is, and why it’s important for organizations to embrace it in order to remain competitive in today’s changing business landscape.
