What Are Resilience and Agility?

Resilience and agility are related concepts, but they refer to different aspects of an individual’s or a system’s ability to cope with change and adversity.

Resilience refers to the capacity to withstand and recover from stress, trauma, or disruption, and it is often characterised by the ability to maintain a sense of stability and composure in the face of adversity. Resilience involves both the ability to withstand stress and the ability to bounce back from it.

Agility, on the other hand, refers to the ability to respond quickly and effectively to changing circumstances, to adapt to new situations, and to pivot as needed. Agility involves being flexible and nimble, both mentally and physically, and it is often seen as an important factor in success in rapidly changing environments.

In summary, resilience is the ability to withstand stress, while agility is the ability to respond and adapt to change. Both are important for success and well-being, and they can complement each other in helping individuals and systems to thrive. As a keynote speaker, Rob discusses how these two interrelated concepts are needed to successfully push through adversity and seek out new horizons.
