Lucille Greeff hosts Sharon Shakung for the WorldsView OD Talk on 17 June 2020
Diversity in society and in organisations is not a new phenomenon. Neither is resilience. While both seem to have taken center stage in conversations and dialogues in recent times, they are age-old occurrences and so is the connection between them. As concepts and in practice, diversity and resilience are intricately linked as parts of the complex, adaptive systems we live and work in every day. Much of our effectiveness as individuals and organisations hangs off our understanding of diversity and resilience, and our application of that knowledge in choices and decisions about how we show up and interact with others, particularly in challenging times and environments. This talk shares some insights and explores possibilities for change and transformation.
