Would you be attracted to a workplace that developed resilience and change readiness so that you don’t just survive disruptive change, but you get stronger because of it?

Now pause for a moment and ask a challenging question: Do these practices really make people and organisations stronger, or could they be having the opposite effect?
To paraphrase Nassim Taleb, author of Antifragile, are the practices that corporate Australia uses to protect and support you and your colleagues actually making you more vulnerable to disruptive change?
