In an age of constant change and disruption, how might we not just survive, but thrive? One school of thought suggests that we focus on building resilience, but what exactly does that mean? General Stanley McChrystal, former director of the Joint Special Operations Command and author of Team of Teams, defines it as "the capacity of a system to absorb disturbance and still retain its basic function and structure."

In this session, we will talk with Charlotte leaders who will share their first-hand experiences with cultivating resilience in organizations, communities, and individuals.

Special Guests:

Paula Broadwell
Cofounder and Director
Think Broader Foundation

Mike McGuire

Grant Thornton
