Adaptability in Talent Development
Boost Your Adaptability
Adaptability is a critical skill for leadership capability, career potential, and working relationships. Therefore, it is vital for talent development (TD) professionals who face countless situations that test their ability to adapt—from reacting to unplanned modifications in the training they design, to implementing new learning technologies, to adjusting to their organization’s shifting needs.
Part of the ATD Soft Skills Series, Adaptability in Talent Development will empower you to build career resiliency by matching your technical expertise with newfound soft skill abilities. TD expert Esther Jackson takes you through a process of raising your self-awareness and developing an adaptive mindset. This means embracing feedback, recognizing your mistakes, and turning them into learning and development moments. You will discover ways to get out of your comfort zone, welcome chances to innovate or disrupt and embrace new projects. By the end, you will be equipped to level up your TD efforts and adapt your career for whatever comes next.
Included are guiding questions and tools to build your adaptability value proposition for whatever TD role you may hold.
