    How many times have you recently heard your industry leaders talk about how your
    company needs to be adaptive to compete? How many job postings have you seen lately
    that suggest ‘adaptability’ as a desired skill for new team members?

    We speak about adaptability as if it’s self evident. But what does it really mean? How do
    we teach it? How do we develop it? How do we embed it in our business strategy?
    And, more importantly, how will we respond when being adaptable forces us to confront
    old organizational habits, beliefs and performance infrastructure that may be getting in our
    way? What will our leaders and our teams have to learn – and unlearn - to build
    organizations that have the capacity to adapt well?.

    Presented by: Shelley Roberts, MBA, BSc., CEC
    CEO, StrategyClicks, Inc.

    Shelley Roberts is a contagious and respected business consultant with over 20 years’
    experience in the people side of performance. Shelley’s company, StrategyClicks, works
    with leaders and process improvement teams in Fortune 100 companies, non-profits,
    government agencies - even the the US Department of Defense - to create environments
    where people can build specific adaptive habits.

    Shelley is known for her energy, her great questions, and her disarmingly fun approach to
    producing results that matter. In our lunch session, Shelley will bring that energy and her
    experience to share insights and proven tools to develop the capacity to adapt in the face
    of the rapid changes we are navigating today.
