1. Adaptability and Resiliency Louise Neil & Kim Romain 40:09

While the world is always in a state of change, the past 2-1/2 years have thrown a spotlight on just how quickly things can (and do) change – in our lives, our workplaces, our communities… everywhere.

We often hear the words adaptability and resiliency as being key components to success in this ever-changing world. Often, they are used interchangeably. And yet, they are different and serve different purposes.

In this week’s show, Kim & Louise talk about what adaptability and resiliency are, how they overlap, and how they are different yet both important to thriving in times of change and transition.
