Agility is the ability to improve performance — not just survive but thrive — amid disruption. Research by Wade et al (HBR Sep 2,2021 ) captured the recipe. First, the companies were nimble enough to avoid the worst impacts; second, when they were hit, they were robust enough to absorb a lot of the damage; and third, they were resilient enough to accelerate forward faster and more effectively than their peers. We refer to this combination of capabilities as the Triple As of strategic agility.

Let this sink in… As we embark on our 2022 journey, here is our weekly encapsulated summary of key events that could shape your Leadership Flexibility growth…
