Adaptability & Resilience
“There is only one kind of shock worse than the totally unexpected: the expected for which one has refused to prepare” – Mary Renault (Novelist)
Resilience is the capacity to bounce back from disruption. Resilience is the capacity to continue making progress towards your current career or business goals with the resources and strategies you have already developed; to keep calm and carry on, as it were.
Adaptability involves reformulating your goals and / or strategies to adapt to new work and career realities. Such changes ideally leave you less vulnerable to the previous shocks and more aligned with your new work environment.
Flach (1988), a psychologist who writes about change and resilience, describes the transformation process as a series of movements that lead toward new beginnings. The transformation is initiated by a stress point, that brings to our attention a sense of dissonance and dis-ease with some aspect of our lives.
