Virtues for the Change Journey: Episode 2: Resilience – Rising Above

In this episode of the Agile Uprising podcast, host Andy Cleff delves into the virtue of resilience and its critical role in driving positive change within organizations.
Building on  previous discussions about courage, Andy explores how resilience enables individuals and teams to bounce back from setbacks, adapt to stressful situations, and persist through adversity.
He outlines five key characteristics of resilience: positivity, focus, flexibility, organization, and proactivity. Through real-world examples, such as Spotify’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Andy illustrates how these traits can be cultivated intentionally.
He also shares practical tips for building resilience at both personal and organizational levels, emphasizing the importance of practices like gratitude, mindfulness, and continuous learning.
