Resilience: Why Things Bounce Back
There have been periods of upheaval of all kinds throughout human history. Sometimes people, communities, organizations and systems fail, fall apart, or die, and sometimes they thrive, adapt and learn to succeed. What makes the difference between thriving and failing? One of our guests today has explored and studied that question and has come up with a theory - resilience. Andrew Zolli co-authored Resilience: Why Things Bounce Back, and he'll join us to talk about what makes a person or organization resilient when others aren't, when Charlotte Talks.
