Overnight the work world shifted. Remote work. Essential employees. Social distancing. What has enabled some individuals and businesses to not just survive but even thrive through this crisis—and what can we learn from them? In this fireside chat, Pam Dibbs will interview futurist Jen Gresham about how organizations large and small are tipping the odds towards post-traumatic growth and “herd resiliency,” helping them become better, stronger, and more adaptive than they were before. We will explore the mindsets, skill sets, processes, and organizational structures that help leaders and their teams perform their best, even through disruption and global transformation.
