People are a critical aspect of an organization’s resilience. Creating a resilient workforce requires adopting new organizational structures that align to changing employee needs.
When resilience principles – horizon scanning, intelligence analysis, asset protection, contingency planning, crisis management – are integrated into business functions, it creates an internal capacity focused on identifying blind spots, challenging biases and assumptions, and monitoring organizational health.
They recognize the dynamic environment and think about resilience as more than continuity of operations. The resilient organization is as much about seizing the opportunities presented by disruptions as minimizing the impacts. It enables resilient decision-making by the organization and the employee.
How do organizations navigate a world where norms are regularly challenged and complete transparency drives accountability?
Toffler Associates Presents
The outcome is a more resilient organization, one that can identify, anticipate, respond to and bounce-forward from disruption – financial, regulatory, operational, reputational, and political.
With the accelerating pace of innovation in emerging technologies, organizations must identify ways to incorporate disruptive technologies but also anticipate legal, societal, workforce, and regulatory impacts, such as privacy and trust.
The growing emphasis on the corporate social conscious demands organizations to stand for something more. This introduces the potential for additional third-party risk based on new investments and partnerships.

Toffler Associates hosted a Future Shock Social to discuss the future of resilience and how organizations can change the narrative: Resilience to Returns
from the evening...
How is resilience embedded in the organization’s decision-making process?
When your foundation is no longer stable, how do you make other decisions?
How do new threats present new areas for services and offerings?
Resilience not only helps mitigate impact of disruptive events but helps support the overall strategy and future direction. Leaders must take a proactive approach to scan, identify, and mitigate traditional risk and non-traditional threats.
Foundational items that were once “givens” and could be planned for, are no longer – climate is more extreme, the financial accounting system is shifting, and power is increasingly distributed. Organizations have to consider the broader ecosystem of potential disruption and available resources for mitigation.
Today’s environment requires an appreciation and an awareness of the unknowns. An organization’s risk aperture must be wide enough to consider new types of risk and be creative in generating solutions that provide opportunities for success.
