Resilience – How to bring your best through the worst – John Clapham, Agile on the Beach 2019

Shall we be honest? Agile isn’t all glamour, manifestos and medals. If you’ve found a new way of doing things, its hard getting people to listen, never mind do. As leaders, coaches and reluctant change agents we find ourselves campaigning through a sea of resistance and indifference. There are bad days, weeks, months, even years.

John Clapham’s Agile On The Beach session from 2019 explores how people and teams survive and enable change and why some folk are still smiling at the end of the toughest days. Resilience, the ability to adapt to new challenges and difficult situations, is one of the key factors.

Listen to John talk about how we look at resilience, what it is, when and why it’s useful, and how to develop the trait within yourself and your team. You may not need it now, but you never know when you will…
