March Presentation: Building an Antifragile Team

When: 29 Mar 2023 11:45 AM, EDT
Where: Go To Webinar


In today’s rapidly changing business environment, organizations face increasing uncertainty, volatility, and complexity levels. The traditional approach to managing teams, which is based on stability and predictability, needs to be revised. The concept of antifragility, introduced by Nassim Nicholas Taleb, provides a new perspective on how organizations can thrive in such an environment. Building an antifragile team is a powerful approach to managing teams in today’s rapidly changing business environment. Antifragile teams are better equipped to handle change, uncertainty, and volatility and are more likely to generate positive outcomes. Building an antifragile team requires a deliberate and systematic approach, but the benefits are well worth the effort.
