The impact of Hurricane Sandy is just awful and while my heart goes out to those affected by the storm, I’m drawn to the amazing efforts of people working together to do whatever they can to help. It got me thinking about a word used by many change management experts: resilience—the ability to come back from adversity and be even stronger. Human resources professionals know that resilient employees are more proactive and positive and they are better prepared to adjust quickly to change.
Change can happen at any time and while human resources professionals are already using change management as part of how you do your jobs, it is during a crisis that all eyes are on you to maintain employee morale and productivity. The more you know about managing change, the more value you bring to your business. Check out our upcoming Change Management Conference.
Let’s all be resilient!
