Chances are your mom never told you that leaders and consultants need tools to increase
agility—not just in the IT department but across the entire company.

She probably never informed you that grown-ups have to deal with people who hold different values

along with acceptable levels of personal stress, they will struggle to adapt to new situations
(outcomes agility).

How do you help people from all areas of the company to be flexible enough to feel comfortable

In the first part of this groundbreaking session, acclaimed Leading Exponential Change author Erich
R. Bühler helps you experience what employees feel when exposed to situations that challenge their
