Undisruptable: A Mindset of Permanent Reinvention for Individuals, Organisations and Life by Aidan McCullen
About the Book
Understand the barriers to change and cultivate a reinvention mindset that will make you impervious to disruption
In our world of incessant change, we are all threatened by volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity—at the individual and organizational levels. Undisruptable will give you a new lens through which to consider change as an opportunity rather than an obstacle.
You’ll be inspired to consider the big questions of today:
- What does the future hold?
- What does the exponential growth of technology mean for the world of work?
- What does a changing job market mean for future generations?
- What do waves of disruption mean for business leaders?
Society is evolving at breakneck speed. What does this mean for all of us? Undisruptable will help you to bridge the chaos and build the resilience you need to move forward.
While we cannot see into the future, there are repeatable patterns that we can understand. Undisruptable demystifies the principles of change through a blend of analogies, innovation frameworks, and exemplars of change such as Fujifilm and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The first step to becoming undisputable is to realize that evolution is a natural part of life, and nature provides many examples. Undisruptable will help you to:
- Understand the principles of change
- Overcome the barriers to change
- See change as an opportunity and not an obstacle
- Utilize simple frameworks and examples to guide you on your transformation
By the end of this book, you will have the essential tools and techniques to foster a reinvention mindset that will help you and your organization to become Undisruptable.
This book is part of a 3-part series. Part 2 looks at the biases and mental obstacles that prevent change. Part 3 examines the best ways to communicate change within an organization.
