With the demand for a future ready L&D, where does adaptability fit in and what does it look like?

We are currently facing changes requiring us to stretch beyond just merely creating ways for our organizations to adjust to a virtual world. This answers the question: Just because everyone else is adapting, why should I? The pace of today’s need for adaptability is taking us by storm. Organizations, leaders, teams, educators, L&D professionals, and workers must adapt in order to survive and thrive. In this session, you will find out what it really means to adapt and gain key takeaways with steps to increasing your adaptability.

As we see the trending focus on EQ, not many are aware of AQ or the adaptability quotient and its importance in our personal and professional lives. Every area of business faces the challenge of keeping pace with the demands of the ever-changing workplace. Thriving organizations recognize that success resides in leveraging the skillset of workers and leaders with a high AQ.

Developing adaptability skills is crucial to facing challenges, being able to innovate and apply creative solutions, leading teams effectively, and staying relevant in one’s professional role. Change happens and it prompts our response whether we’re ready or not. This presents a great opportunity for L&D leaders and teams to position themselves to move beyond resilience and into true adaptability.
