  • Teachable - Diana Nyad said, "I am willing to put myself through anything; temporary pain or disomfort means nothing to me as long as I can see that the experiencd will take me to a new level." Adaptable people always place a high priority on breaking new ground. They are highly teachable.
  • Emotionally Secure - Secure people aren't made nervous by change itself. They evaluate new situation or a change in their responsibilities based on its merit.

  • Creative - Creative people find a way when difficult times come. Somebody might say, "Let's try it this new way" while the ones who don't react with fear are really the creative people. "Let's go there even if we blow it." they'll say. Creativity fosters adaptability.
  • Service Minded - People who are focused on themselves are less likely to make changes for the team than people focused on serving other.

To become more adaptable

To become more adaptable

  • Get into the habit of learning - Every day when you learn something new, try writing it down on the card.
  • Re-evaluate your role - Try to discover whether there is another role you could fulfill as well or better than you do your current one.
  • Think outside the lines - If you tend to be prone to ruts, then write down this and keep it where you can see it everyday: "Not why it can't be fone but how it can be done." Look for uncovential solutions every time you meet a challenge.
  • 📌IF YOU ARE WILLING TO CHANGE AND ADAPT FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR TEAM, YOU ALWAYS HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN.
