What’s required of leaders and employees now more than ever, is a mindset that has the capacity to fully engage with change and see it coming before it lands. So, what does it really mean to be adaptable - and how can we develop our Adaptability Quotient (AQ) in our everyday lives to be better prepared for change? She believes 'the future of work’ is about our talent: the way we negotiate change, actively pursue transformation and create value – both for ourselves and the organisations we work for.
