About this event
We live in an era of unprecedented change. A succession of global crises — from the COVID 19 pandemic, to the war in Ukraine — coupled with rapid technological advancements, have meant that the world of work, much like the world at large, looks almost unrecognisable from the one that existed just a few short years ago — and seems set to go on changing at a similar rate in the near future.
Faced with an ever-changing environment, professionals and businesses have to be able to adapt…or face extinction. They need to be agile; possessing the courage, foresight and will to reshape themselves to suit their new circumstances. Luckily, agility is not an inbuilt characteristic; it is an emotional skill that can be learnt — and mastered.
To discuss the skill of agility, The School of Life will be hosting a talk on Agility in Times of Change. Delivered by a member of our faculty, the talk will discuss the obstacles that stand in the way of an agile mindset, the different pathways to fostering a more adaptive culture within your workplace, and the role that nostalgia and anticipation have to play in shaping our expectations for the future.
The zoom session will open at 5:45pm UK time, and the 1 hour talk will start promptly at 6pm. If you are based outside the UK please check a converter to determine what time this event starts in your local timezone.
