Presenter: David Mantica
 
Topic: Adaptive Leadership: Techniques Thrive in VUCA

 

Leadership is no longer about having a positional powerbase; you have to make leadership a verb not a noun.  To do this work, you must start thinking in terms of self-leadership and utilizing the referent powerbase. In addition, the rapid pace of external change, disruption and complexity requiring a comprehensive change in how you think about your project, conduct your project work and define the value of the outcomes of the project. 

Adaptive Leadership was developed out of Harvard University specifically around dealing with human psychology, evolutionary biology, and behavioral economics.  An Adaptive leader must change their approach to problem solving, testing, communicating, and executing.  They must understand the implications of their work on the overall system and must constantly filter their work based on the value of the outcome it produces.

These skills are critical for a Project Manager regardless of the process or framework. PMs must understand the whys of the practices frameworks discuss to pivot and adjust quickly in the absence of a detailed “playbook” on how to handle volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) situations. 

Learn:

  • The critical elements of defining value
  • Balance needed to execute in rapid change
  • Systems thinking and dealing with adaptive challenges over technical issues
  • The mind set required for adaptive leaders
  • The work approach and critical concepts
  • Bridging adaptive leadership to your project work
