Art and Practice of Adaptive Leadership

Disrupting the status quo and mobilizing for organizational change

Delivered online in real time

Senior leaders today face enormous pressure to lead their organizations in complex, rapidly changing environments. The need for innovative solutions has wrought extensive changes in the art of leadership, and as with any creative discipline, mastery comes with practice.
In this program, you will apply the transformative framework of Adaptive Leadership: a ground-breaking capacity building and leadership coaching approach developed at Harvard University. Learn the art of adapting effectively to disruption (or fomenting it, if necessary). Build skills for activating the potential in people. Practice collaborative methods for designing innovative solutions that drive systemic change.

Each day of this two-day program includes several facilitator-led online sessions in real time, with ample breaks provided. The sessions are highly interactive, enabling you to network with peers, brainstorm ideas, engage in skill-building activities, and receive constructive feedback. You will also have access to self-directed resources (readings, videos, self-reflections etc.) that you can review at any time.

"Adel is a spectacular instructor. He was always willing to unpack the class discussions, and the online format was very interactive and well organized. I got a lot of key takeaways and tools to help me practice adaptive leadership moving forward. Great job, Sauder!"
