Resilience Talks Learning Series Pt 1 with Milton Friesen and Liz Rykert

In this session, Resilience and Relationships, Milton Friesen interviewed complex organizational change and technology expert and President of Meta Strategies, Liz Rykert. In this informative conversation, they explore how social patterns influence our ability to cope with difficulties and examine practical examples of projects that build social resilience- what makes them successful and challenges they face.

The recording of their conversation can be found below along with the presentation slide deck. Please share it with your networks, colleagues and friends! We also had a number of thoughtful questions and comments from the audience both during the webinar as well as through social media - check out the Resilience Talks Storify to catch the conversation.
