Effective leadership and organisational resilience in this new era of uncertainty and disruption are very different. We face a new era of radical uncertainty and disruption brought about by slow-moving challenges, such as climate change, meeting the needs of an ageing society and tackling poverty and respond to shocks including pandemic, extreme weather, and terrorism.

Resilience is not only about bouncing back, but also thriving when faced with adversity. How might you help your organisations to be agile, leverage opportunities and drive innovation in order to remain competitive, and even sustainable, in the face of challenging conditions?

Over the last 20 years, we have been working with policymakers, executives and those in leadership roles to implement a strategic approach to enhancing organisational resilience.
