Given the rapid changes that have and are continuing to occur in the digital arena, your business website is no longer something you can simply set and forget.

This Blog post, from our topic sponsor, explains why it is important for your business to have a responsive website.

Can CEOs be un-disruptable?

Can CEOs be un-disruptable? | Executive Coaching & Mentoring | Scoop.it

Chief executives have traditionally sat at the intersection of the external environment and the internal organization, observing chaos and translating it into clear and actionable instructions. At this “nerve center” for essential information, our popular perception of the “un-disruptable” CEO is of a rigid, impenetrable figure, successfully staring down external adversity. Whether this image ever truly matched reality is debatable, but we know one thing for sure: it definitely no longer applies. To be un-disruptable today requires much more than steering companies through singular (if monumental) events—it demands leaders navigate constant turbulence, continuously adjusting their actions accordingly.

I guess its like the tension between positive emotions and negative emotions in PP. While a preponderance of +ve emotions , on an average, is better than a preponderance of -ve emotions, on an average; the value of acknowledging and processing -ve emotions is increasingly been admitted in PP2.0. Similarity, positive thinking (optimism) on an average is any day preferred over pessimism, though there may be a need to mindfully acknowledge and process the negative thoughts.
