Ask the Expert: Eagle's Flight on Resilience and Adaptability in the Workplace
Whether change occurs because of organizational initiatives, evolving market conditions, global events, or a leadership transition, it is not a matter of if change will occur, but when. Resilience is key for a high performing culture as the world changes around us.
At Eagle’s Flight, we have developed many virtual or in person programs that lead to behaviour change and focus on resiliency and adaptability.
An example of a program developed through COVID-19 out of a response from our clients was a themed virtual experience, where participants are a team of researchers and biologists tasked with monitoring the health of the panda population. This experiential learning session draws out lessons on setting the vision, communication, optimizing impact, resilience, and the importance of high-functioning teams.
Teams will walk away from the session having learnt about:
Being agile and adaptable while keeping the focus on the desired outcome
Upholding the vision through change
Optimizing the success of the change initiative through timely, relevant, and effective communication
Maintain team momentum, and motivation
As we all focus on what our post-pandemic workplace culture will look like, resilience and adaptability will continue to be an important topic for discussion to building a high-capacity workplace culture.
