We have entered the fastest period of change the world has ever seen. Fast Company recently shared "we are approaching the fastest, deepest, most consequential technological disruption in history." There’s a real danger that millions of people and thousands of organizations will be left behind. Adaptability is the key to transforming the way your teams and business reimagine their future. Unfortunately, research reveals that only 1 in 4 employees have high adaptability levels. Consequently, there is such a clarion call for leaders to rethink and adapt that Harvard Business Review describes "Adaptability Quotient" as the new competitive advantage. Likewise, Linkedin identified Adaptability as one of the most in-demand skills of this 3rd decade of the 21st century. Adaptability Quotient (AQai) is a game-changer!
While we have the potential to capture the extraordinary societal benefits that [4th Industrial Revolution] technologies unlock, our ability to do so depends on an unprecedented transformation of society.
James Arbib and Tony Seba
In essence, we must unlearn the things that have taken us this far – a task that is extremely difficult for humans.
Make the intentional switch from survivor to leader!
The SHIFT hit everyone's plans In 2020. It proved that humans suck at exponential change! To make matters worse, the World Economic Forum estimates that by 2022, over half of all employees will need retraining and upskilling...and that was released before the global pandemic!
The good news is that you can do something about it. The bad news is that unless you master adaptability, you will very likely give your job up to a robot, or at the very least, another human being. Adaptability Quotient is what Emotional Intelligence did for careers in the 1990s and early 2000s. It's definitely time for a change. Our "Adaptability Quotient" will soon become the #1 predictor of future success. Are you ready to start the journey to tomorrow?

The best time to adapt is quite simply, always. This is unless you believe that nothing around you will change.
— Stuart Parkin, Director at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics in Halle and professor at the Institute of Physics of the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg
The adaptive, agile, and innovators are thriving. But not everyone has adapted so well. As humans, some of us have limits on our innate adaptability. Some boundaries are imposed by our ability. Others defined by our character (personality) and environment. Pioneering research by Adaptai dissected these boundaries and identified 17 dimensions that can impact our ability to adapt successfully.
You have a choice. Be a force of change or get run over by it. Anticipate the future or resign yourself to it. Are you ready to make a difference, shape your future, chart your course?
There are five key factors that predict or drive adaptability at work. The ability to unlearn is the most important, yet 65 percent have low or medium levels. Other factors include grit, resilience, mindset, and mental flexibility.
Nearly half of employees are motivated to prevent failure. Employees that are proactive are best at change. Other factors include your Emotional Range, Intra/Extraversion preference, Hope, and Thinking Style.
Nearly half of employees do NOT have positive workplace experiences. Even someone with high adaptability skills and an adaptable personality can struggle if the environment negatively impacts adaptability.
