The rate of change in the world today is unprecedented. These changes are driving aggressively, digital transformations agendas, development of new business models and whole new consumer behaviors and preferences. These disruptions are indeed compelling organizational evolutions in diverse shapes and forms. More importantly, they are driving the need for a different kind of workforce, a workforce that is innovative, solutions focused and resilient.

Why? Because navigating layers of disruptions would require a posture of grit and resilience; an orientation and a readiness to grow; to sense and seize opportunities regardless of the shape or form in which they may present themselves. Having a Grit and Growth mindset means that individuals and organizations are able to rise above – even use as ‘fuel’, the challenges presented by the changing business landscape as opposed to shrinking away and excusing themselves from it. It means seeing the business and associated challenges from a whole new perspective; being comfortable with ambiguity and having the stamina to drive relentless change that truly impacts and transforms both the organization, the people and the customer.
