Why are Magnify and POS so vital and relevant to the current changes in the world? 

We need resilience now more than ever! The essence of POS is to discover and unlock untapped potential in organizations, helping us discover new ways of doing and being together even in tough situations. There’s never been a better time to discover how to think and act in ways that will draw out your own resilience and help you build tools to create thriving teams and communities in an online forum.
