Leadership & governance required to begin the journey

They should determine the strategy and objectives for organizational resilience and develop measurement criteria to be used to monitor and evaluate the status of the organization resilience attributes, capabilities, and behaviors.
Enhancing resilience should be a strategic organizational goal, and as such, the organization's leaders must be committed to a sustained focus on organizational resilience.

Are our leaders trusted and respected, and do they act with integrity?

We need to all be following the same map!
More resilient organizations know who they are and what they stand for. A shared purpose is the “glue” that holds the organization together. Purpose helps attract people to join an organization, remain there, and to thrive.
Organizational resilience is enhanced when there is a clearly articulated and understood purpose, vision, and values that provide clarity to decision-making and activities at all levels of the organization.

May 22, 2024 - Are You Enjoying Your Resilience Journey?
Is your organization’s culture a source of risk or a strength on this journey?
An organization’s culture governs how management, employees and stakeholders behave, act, and perform their jobs. Culture is often expressed in members’ self-image, inner workings, and future expectations.
It’s how individuals identify themselves with an organization. It illustrates how a team can work towards achieving desired goals. Culture is what enables a competitive advantage to sustain and grow over time – or what derails it.

June 26, 2024 - How Do We Continue on the Journey When the Road is Under Construction?
Change happens. How do you manage during times of uncertainty?
More resilient organizations build both agile and flexible systems that enable them to respond faster to changing conditions, to improve efficiency, and enhance customer satisfaction. More resilient organizations are structured and designed for both high performance and managing change.
It allows those responsible for responding to and managing an incident to switch from one design to another if needed in order to work in a more agile and flexible manner.

August 28, 2024 - The Road We’re on is Very Risky! Are We Strong Enough to Continue the Journey?
Have we considered all the ways our journey can be disrupted?
Organization’s should identify and implement systems to anticipate, plan, and respond to recognized and emerging risks so that they individually and collectively contribute to the organization's purpose and the protection of what it values - eliminating siloes.

September 26, 2024 - What Have We Learned So Far on our Journey?
We need to stop and smell the roses! Or at least share how things are going.
In more resilient organizations, knowledge and information is recognized as a critical resource of the organization. The organization values information, knowledge and learning. Learning from experience and from each other is encouraged.
They encourage the creation and sharing of lessons learned about success and failure and promote the adoption of better practice. They encourage their people to communicate their ideas both vertically and horizontally in the organization and to share knowledge and information in a timely manner to enable effective decision-making.

October 23, 2024 - Are We There Yet?
Measuring our performance - How are we doing?
Because building resilience must be intentional, measuring your capabilities is an essential part of the journey. It is also impossible to implement strategic objectives effectively without having the ability to measure your current state and where you need to strengthen those capabilities – or to determine what is and what is not working.
The organization should encourage and create a culture of continual improvement across all parts of the organization and commit to validate and continually improve its organizational resilience activities and capabilities.
Attend this session to gain an understanding of how to promote a mindset of continuous improvement by leveraging agile performance management. We will help you answer the question, “How can improve how we evaluate our performance?”
November 20, 2024 - Is This Where We Want to Be?
Is our workplace flexible, productive, and meet employee needs for collaboration?
More and more organizations are adopting a flexible hybrid working model with a balance between office and remote work. This requires an understanding that while the roles can be virtual, certain activities are better done in person.
In an agile workplace, the organization understands how its people like to work, how often they need to interact with others, and how they do their best work. This understanding drives decision-making regarding where the work occurs.
Organizations should also consider the ability of the community(ies) where its facilities operate to meet its needs and expectations. The key questions that should be answered include, “To what extent does your community meet the needs of your organization? and, “Is your community able to provide necessary services?”
Attend this session to learn more about a flexible working model and inclusive collaboration as well as the importance of considering the resilience of the community where you work. We will help you answer the question, “How do we ensure we have the right people working on the right stuff in the right place?”
