Bond executive targets organisational resilience

 

THE Centre for Executive Education (CEE) at Bond University will this month target organisational resilience as part of its ongoing Corporate Agenda workshop series for 2009.  
CEE director Melinda Muir believes that in an increasingly unstable economic climate and competitive market, strategic personal and organisational resilience has become more than simply responding to a setback.
“Organisations and individuals alike need to be resilient and able to display the capacity and foresight for change before that need for change becomes obvious,” says Muir.
“They will need to demonstrate resilience in being able to actively manage stressful situations in a calm and positive manner, and inspire their colleagues to conduct themselves in the same fashion,” she says.
In this climate, resilience and the ability to respond quickly, decisively and effectively to unforeseen and unpredictable forces have now become business imperatives and job qualities sought in both employees and graduates.
“During the economic downturn, resilient employees and graduates are those that will remain goal-orientated, professional and productive- becoming greater contributors to the organisation faster,” says Muir.
Delivered by panel members Professor Ken Parry (Bond University) and Cameron Wyatt (Synergy Training), the workshop will combine practical and theoretical examples in providing participants with strategies for analysing, engaging and building resilience.
The seminar will take place on April 21 from 6pm to 8pm at Bond University, Princeton Room. More info at: [email protected]
