It’s a BANI world and we’re living in it. BANI, a standing for Brittle, Anxious, Non-linear, and Incomprehensible, is the new way of describing our current situation: A world of uncertainty and constant change. After the post-pandemic boom, we’re now at risk of a recession. Both organizations and people are fragile, fear an unknown future, and exist in a world that feels more chaotic than any time in our current era. Developing our leaders and supporting employees couldn’t be more important than it is today.
BANI and Leadership Development
In our recent webinar, we discussed how the BANI framework can help HR and L&D teams create stronger leaders in order to be ready for whatever comes our way. Today we continue to struggle with the effects of the Great Resignation and an ever-fluctuating job market. While economic uncertainty can always impact an organization, developing the right people, at the right time, for the right role with the right skills, is the only way we can achieve our set KPIs and continue to do great work.
The top soft skills most important to beating BANI today fall under a wider skillset that includes communications, management, and leadership and include almost all soft skills. Once you’ve identified what skills your employees need to build organizational resilience, you can build customized leadership development programs targeted at developing these specific skills for your leaders. And GrowthSpace platform is designed for these exact needs.
