Promote Resilience With Adaptability Skills

By Eileen McDargh - Sunday, January 06, 2008
Security rests in adaptability. Our current uncertain times can either freeze us from action, or create a space where we strengthen our ability to adapt. Remember, survival is based on "requisite variety". That's a fancy biological term that basically means the organism that has the greatest number of responses to a situation has the greater chance of surviving. Watts Wacker, a noted futurist, offers six things we can do to gain more options for ourselves: · Learn to be a better listener. You don't learn when you are talking. · Read a trade magazine from a different industry. Find two things in every issue that relate to your business. · Let your kids tutor you in a subject they know more about than you do. · Volunteer, and see the world through a different window. · Read what has stood the test of time. Read Aristotle, Shakespeare, Adam Smith. . Reading the great books helps frame your thinking.
