Talk by Marc Maltz, MBA consultant, clinician for major corporations and start-ups alike, and co-author of the seminar work on Organizational Resilience.
Marc Maltz, MBA, RODP with over thirty years of business experience as an organizational consultant has helped, CEO’s, Presidents, Boards, and senior officers develop and transform their organizations, managing risk, improving productivity and execution, expanding markets, and achieving new strategies.
Since September 11, 2001, Marc has focused on developing healthy, “resilient” organizations. Working with an investment bank that was headquartered in the World Trade Center, Marc and a team of consultant’s and clinicians, helped guide this firm to achieve remarkable results; overcoming the loss of one-third of the firm, including partners and some founders, to quickly become more profitable than ever as leaders in their markets.
Utilizing the learning from this tragedy and remarkable recovery, Marc has developed a practice in the emergent field of organizational resilience. Whether an organization has experienced a trauma or less dramatic shifts in markets or business conditions, “resilience” is a critical concept for managing in an increasingly complex world.
Marc has published in a number of scholarly journals and editions in the field of organizational psychology and psychoanalysis.
