Art and Practice of Adaptive Leadership

Disrupting the status quo and mobilizing for organizational change

Delivered 100% online

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.



Online program format

Each day includes two facilitator-led online sessions in real time. The sessions are highly interactive with opportunities for you to engage in skill-building activities, reflect on the content with peers, and receive constructive feedback. Breaks between sessions provide time for you to contemplate what you have learned and recharge your energies. You will also receive supplemental resources (readings, videos, self-reflections etc.) that you can access at any time before, during or after the program.
