A Google search of “how to deal with adversity” returns over 22 million results. Consultant, author Steve Gavatorta says if college graduates cannot adapt to this ever-changing, fast-paced environment in a productive, proactive manner, it will eat them up.
Continual changes in job security via downsizing, mergers, acquisitions, instability, and change are becoming the norm, and with that come both opportunities and difficulties that are hitting us faster than ever. Add to that a highly diverse generational work environment and unforeseen problems could arise. With that, the need to learn to overcome these challenges takes on a new importance.
