“The single biggest failure of leadership is to treat adaptive challenges like technical problems.” -Ron Heifetz

We live and work in an increasingly interconnected and rapidly changing world. New business models are shifting duties to teams instead of individuals, which means people are now working more closely together. It also means leaders at all levels have to begin to adapt their leadership style to guide the intricacies of human dynamics and channel the collective knowledge of the groups they interact with.

In this workshop, we will explore how leaders create environments that navigate the complexity of interpersonal relationships, overcome the human element of barriers to change, and support the growth and engagement of their employees. Attendees will walk out of the room with a clearer idea of their own leadership style and a list of action items they can use (tomorrow!) to move their teams one step closer to higher performance.

Learning Outcomes:
Learners will leave:
  •  Knowing the difference between technical solutions and adaptive solutions.
  • Understanding where the most typical leadership interventions fall on the adaptive/technical map.
  •  With a clearer picture of their own leadership style and a list of action items they can use to move themselves more toward the adaptive realm.
