How Agile Are You?

Rethinking Capability Building for 2021

This week marks several milestones for me personally and guideposts for our collective future. It is Thanksgiving week in the year 2020. I am thinking that one thing we might all be thankful for ... is that it means it is almost over! 2020 has been a year of aggravated assault on many fronts. It would be nice to think we could just quarantine the madness in the year 2020 and leave it all behind us.

Yet, in spite of that, I encourage all of us to seek and find our sense of hopefulness and optimism. I know that there is much in my life that I am grateful for and appreciate every day. One of those things is my daughter Meaghan who has one of those "big" birthdays this year and it always lands during Thanksgiving week.

I am also thankful to live in a great country in which I am confident will demonstrate the kind of resilience and adaptability needed to move from where we are (seemingly stuck in the muck) to get to a more promising, positive and productive future.

Organizations (even big ones like our country) need to continuously re-establish clarity around what really matters, create unity and commitment for operating with shared values and ethos and build a sense of agility to address issues and obstacles better and faster by creating more inclusion and engagement.

Let me know your thoughts!

I am pretty sure it is not what we are all experiencing in this COVID-19 malaise that has us bogged down and generally feeling low.   Hard as it is to imagine sometimes, I do believe we will find some silver linings as we come out and find the other side of this mushiness (and I [...]...»
