In a world where building resilience has never been more necessary or relevant, leading workplace expert Bruce Daisley, delves into the topic, challenging the traditional approach in a ground-breaking way.
The former European boss of Twitter, shares some sought-after insights. Bruce Daisley leads us to the core of what resilience means, helping people understand the true essence of it – “resilience is a collective strength.”

Work feels less resilient than ever before, and people don’t seem to be as resilient as they used to be. His deep dive into this evolving reality provides a necessary take within this modern world. Furthermore, liberating teams while supporting creativity, innovation and performance.
The relationship with work is transforming at a rapid pace, yet the strategies towards this don’t seem to be following suit. “If firms are going to achieve breakout results, breakout culture, they need to think about doing things in a different way.” People are starting to understand and explore how to create highly motivated teams, in a way that has never been done before.
