Irrelevant. Outdated. Old fashioned. These are judgments made not only about too many professionals’ experience but also about companies, associations, products and services. The global pandemic has taught us that we have to be able to reinvent ourselves and our organisations to have any hope of success beyond survival.
In a fast paced, VUCA world, we need to be on constant guard that what we are offering the marketplace is resilient, robust, anti-fragile, innovative and essentially relevant. This cannot be fixed by adding a new product line or taking a new course. We have to have a mindset of constant growth and development, constant learning, and lose our attachment to old ways of defining ourselves and our organisations.
