Examples include helping your organization's leadership:
years ago, Steven Covey coined the phrase; "continuous whitewater"
in describing the kind of situation new leaders would have to prepare
for in the future. Little did we know, how true this would become
as those at the helm of businesses, healthcare and other organizations
have had to navigate more and more the tumultuous waters of change,
(often-massive change), with little time to "breathe" in between
each new wave.
and knowledge in managing the specific processes of change, creating
and embodying a vision and a clear direction, maximizing people's
efforts and effectively using human and other resources to complete
the tasks at hand will be critical. All the while, leaders will
need to be maintain staff morale and alignment with organizational
goals and gain and sustain customer, (or patient) goodwill and loyalty
if they are to remain successful.

workplace, no workplace today can afford to have non-performers
or unengaged employees holding back the team. Learning both the
"soft" skills and the execution skills necessary to develop strong,
effective and high functioning teams will be invaluable for today's

too little action in this area is likely to lead to disastrous results
in the next 5-10 years.
Vital and Resilient Leaders
ability to effectively manage stress, stay healthy and manage not
just time but energy levels, will be increasingly important to maintaining
a vital, productive, high-performing organization. Executives and
"high potentials" will need to learn practice and model the habits
necessary to continue to sustain the level of resiliency needed
to inspire the future organization
