Critical Thinking: Adaptability
Change is inevitable in life. Arming ourselves with adaptability will go a long way in handling change. People who adapt easily are a flexible set of people who you find excel in a team. Adaptability opens up your mind to new ideas and gives you the willingness to go against norms to do something better for the organization and yourself. Adaptable people aren’t scared of change, as they understand that change is the new normal and needs to be managed with both planning and flexibility.
