Our lives are full of challenges and misfortune and yet as individuals, we respond to them quite differently depending on how resilient we are. Our resiliency is measured by how quickly we recover from adversity, how long it takes us to and dust ourselves off and bounce back.

There are ways to become more resilient, flexibility is one skill that plays a key role in life and in the workplace when things are constantly changing.

When business operations change, employees must be nimble and prepared to learn new skills which may include re-educating themselves and be ready to think and do things differently.

Leaders must make courageous and hard decisions to transition their teams effectively and efficiently. The more resilient employees are the stronger and more productive the organization.
