When Seth Schultz joined The Resilience Shift one year ago with big ambitions for our initiative, he set high goals for our team. Did we achieve them? Seth looks back at the year, and how resilience is now on everyone’s mind. Watch highlights video.
Resilient Leadership hosts Seth Schultz and Peter Willis welcome resilience royalty, Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac, for the final Resilient Leadership podcast of the year.
Over the next 15 years, the OECD has estimated that around $103 trillion investment is needed to support our ageing and deteriorating critical infrastructure systems globally. Is the civil engineering community ready to deliver this investment?
As much as Covid is revealing the strengths and vulnerabilities of our infrastructure, our supply chains, and our societies, it is also bringing to the fore the importance of this invisible infrastructure and the army of humans that support it day to day.
“We became human around a fire at night”, said Peter Willis, as we talked with him about the power of reflective learning. “Conversation is more primitive than we think”. Peter is interviewing senior leaders each week over 16 weeks to capture their reflective learning.

People can learn, in a more dynamic way, to gain insight on what matters for resilience.
We’re working at a leadership level to unlock the opportunity of using engineers as a driving positive force for impact. The potential of post-Covid economic stimuli requires us to ensure that we are picking the right infrastructure projects to fund and then designing and building them with resilience in mind from the outset.
