In her books and talks, she shows how Emotional Agility helps us lead our best possible lives in a world where globalization and rapid technological change have fundamentally disrupted the way we live and work. People are caught between organizational demands and environmental realities: organizations demand flexibility, teaming, customer-centricity, innovativeness, and inclusiveness, yet at the same time increasing complexity conspires against positive change leading to rigidity, black-and-white thinking, and transactional relationships. The demand on people to be more agile has never been greater. Emotional Agility directly and powerfully addresses this unmet need. she have been amazed at the power of the concept and its profound resonance with both corporate and community audiences.
