26 August 2016 – Almaty, Kazakhstan – Access to a new resource has been added to the PM World Library related to Project Management. The new resource is titled “Panic Management: Keep Your Eyes on the Road”, a post by Dina Gerdeman on a Harvard Business School educational website.

Many of us respond with a knee-jerk reaction when adversity hits, but a more considered approach is better for a successful resolution. Joshua Margolis discusses the resilience regimen. Joshua D. Margolis is Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School.

Managers are faced with significant challenges—a shaky worldwide economy, an increasingly globalized business world, and technologies that are constantly changing. Within that dynamic environment, a curveball can come from anywhere: a portion of their businesses may suddenly dry up, belt-tightening layoffs may loom, or strategic plans that made sense years ago may need serious rejiggering to compete in our ever-more-mobile, Internet-dependent society.

Margolis, who co-wrote a Harvard Business Review article called How to Bounce Back from Adversity with PEAK Learning CEO Paul G. Stoltz, looked at how workers could face challenges head on, by becoming more resilient, building a repertoire of skills that allow them to recover quickly, and responding constructively to hardships.
