Whilst agility is your ability to move quickly and decisively and to do so with ease and comfort, resilience is your ability to quickly and effectively recover from challenging situations.
Resilience is about coming back stronger and more capable from adversity. Those who have developed true resilience welcome change as an opportunity for learning and growth. Resilient people are not immune to the VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world, yet they get less disrupted. They move through change swiftly and tend to be more productive and positive during times of uncertainty.
In recent years, we have seen that traditional approaches to leadership have become ineffective.

Combined with other emerging trends such as continuous improvement, customer-centred design, digitalisation, and the lean management style, change leadership can help leaders create an ideal environment for their businesses and teams to innovate and grow.
Leaders must acknowledge the challenges that organisational change brings. According to Gartner, over 80% of employees experience cultural tensions or competing priorities during transformations. Both create stress and worsen performance.

No matter where you stand on the debate of transformation and the speed at which it is happening, one thing is sure: Change has become a fact of life.

These three make the top of our change-myth-that-need-busting-list. Why? Because they are an outdated recipe for a messy transition. They stifle motivation and collaboration. And, ultimately set organisations up to fail in delivering successful change.
