“Presilience” w/ Dr. Gavriel Schneider

Join me July 8, 2021 at 9am EST!

Presilience is a different way of viewing resilience, in individuals and organizations. Join me as I talk with acknowledged subject matter expert on human centric and Integrated Risk Management, Safety and Security, Dr. Gavriel Schneider. Dr. Schneider has extensive senior level management and leadership experience, and talks to us about how the current compliance-based resiliency approach of organizational leaders needs to change. Presilience is about the ongoing use of skills in a way to better your response to risk, whether it is an opportunity, crisis or emergency. It’s not just the commonplace way of utilizing risk management to create a ‘response plan’; it allows you and your organization to be better positioned even after you’ve experienced an adverse situation. We’ll also talk about the VUCM world of risk management (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous).

It’s a real eye-opener of a chat, so don’t miss it!
