With any business resilience is vital. At times you may feel like you are holding on in a storm and battening down the hatches.
Resilience and being able to adapt as the weather changes are a set of skills that can be acquired. Part of resilience can include decision making, knowing when to make changes, knowing when not to make changes and then having the courage and skills to implement difficult and controversial decisions for the good of your business.
Adaptability as a skill refers to the ability of the business leader to change their actions, course or approach to doing things in order to suit a new situation. We constantly change our methods because our business world is changing always. Changes in external and internal elements can force your hand in order for changes to be forced upon you. Being proactive in anticipating changes that will effect you helps with better execution of changes in a more successful and organised way.
