For leaders in every industry, adaptability and resilience are increasingly critical skills. We live in a world of unprecedented uncertainty – from the economy and international security to natural disasters and more. In the face of all this volatility, ups and downs at work (and life!) are inevitable. If you don’t manage them well, they can derail your productivity, erode your confidence and become major obstacles to success. In this Jam Session, you’ll learn strategies and techniques that have worked for Olympic athletes, Navy SEALS and other peak performers to prepare for big events so you perform at your best; to recover quickly if things do go wrong and to become more resilient day-to-day to achieve success despite change and challenging conditions.
