What’s the state of leadership in your organisation today?

How dispersed (wide and deep) is your leadership?

Here’s a clue, we are not talking about a title or job role… we are talking about behaviour.

Adaptive Leadership is a framework of leadership that is becoming an essential part of a Fourth Industrial toolkit. There are four tenets tied to Adaptive Leadership:

  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Organisational Justice
  • Development
  • Character

Self-directed leadership and leadership of others during times of significant change is not something you want to hope happens naturally. It is a capability that we can and should develop within our organisations regardless of title.

What will set your organisation apart?

We must start to grow capability and not continually look to buy talent. Growing a culture of Adaptive Leadership is a set of capabilities that everyone one of us should be working towards, not just in terms of leadership, but as human beings in a rapidly changing world. Being able to demonstrate the traits of an adaptive leader will be at the top of the list for employers regardless of job role.

Is this course for your organisation?

During this course learners will be asked to delve into a personal strengths project and to look at what makes them unique. Understanding and leveraging personal strengths is what will help keep a stable base when working through times of change and ambiguity. Learners will also develop skills in communication and plan their future growth and development strategy. This is a personal responsibility, not just a function of the L&D team.

This course is short (7 to 8 hours over 3 weeks), sharp (very focussed) and impacting (will change behaviour and grow your capability for the future). Building a community of practice and trust, learners work collaboratively with colleagues and coaches who will become a tight, trusted community over the 3 weeks… and maybe much longer.
