CloseUp with Pamela Meyer

Share this post:

Imagine a slalom skier racing down a mountain. She familiarized herself with the course and set a game plan, but now she’s scanning the terrain ahead and making split-second decisions and adjustments based on changing conditions as she flies toward each successive gate at fantastic speeds. It’s an apt metaphor for how organizations today must cope with a business environment of rapid innovation and disruption. The word that comes to mind is “agility.”

As both an award-winning slalom skier and a sought-after expert on business leadership, Pamela Meyer, Ph.D., is agile on the slopes and off. She helps companies and their leaders change not just their actions but their attitudes and thinking to cope with the constantly shifting business landscape. She also teaches courses in business creativity, organizational change and adult learning at DePaul University, School for New Learning in Chicago. In her new book, The Agility Shift: Creating Agile and Effective Leaders, Teams and Organizations, Pamela expounds the idea of creating effective leaders and teams that are able to thrive in the age of disruption.

Now, it’s time for Pamela’s CloseUp.
