 More about Marti from her LinkedIn profile

“Within my well-researched body of work, I’ve created links between individual career agility and workforce agility, two essential behaviors for thriving in a world of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity.

 The flexible agility model enables individuals and organizations to better assess fluid circumstances with the goal of adapting to change in a strategic manner.

 According to my research the agility mindset can be learned and is one of the most needed power skills in the workplace today. Organizations require agility thinkers to move their organizations forward, especially in times of disruption and uncertainty.

 Job seekers and the employers who hire them benefit from the nimble and forward-thinking approach of those who forge the future and cultivate agility, rather than stop in their tracks via stagnation.

 The World Economic Forum when referring to organizational resilience in response to the pandemic, mentioned,

 “When asked about “being more agile”, having fluid teams and workers with broad skill sets were most important to companies – above agile work practices, or agile organization design.”

 Contact me for keynote speeches, training and coaching:

  Job search strategies for mid-careerists in a time of change

Agility skills training for individuals and teams

Personal brand development for individuals, teams, and leadership with organizations

 My processes and exercises will help you cultivate observation skills, flex your personal agility muscle, and develop adaptability intelligence for your job search or business strategies.”
