Leader's Toolbox: Developing Adaptive Performers

How can leaders promote flexibility and adaptivity in "change resistant" employees? Associate Professor Elizabeth Solberg gives advice based on her doctoral research.

Most organizations, both private and public, operate in changing and dynamic business environments. Hence, the need for adaptive employees who cope with and respond well to changing job demands has become increasingly important.

Many organizations strive to recruit adaptive performers. But how can they cultivate these qualities in existing employees?

Associate Professor Elizabeth Solberg at BI Norwegian Business School will give a lecture on how leaders can promote flexibility and adaptivity in “change resistant” employees.

Leader's Toolbox (Lederens verktøykasse) is a series of seminars at BI Norwegian Business School held every last Friday of the month.
