Any changes to the normal routine requires some level of adjustment and the ability to adapt to the new situation and environment.
From conversations I have had with people from different organisations I have understood that they find it hard to adapt to new challenges and the implementation of new strategy, process or any change to their current situation.
As a leader, there is an expectation to be able to adapt to the new situation quickly and think on your feet.
Adaptability in the workplace is the ability to demonstrate flexibility and to adapt to the changes. Individuals that are adaptable tend to work well both independently or within a team.
As life shows us, there are always unexpected things that we cannot predict or plan for, so adaptability is always a good skill to have in your tool box.
