Practical Adaptive Leadership: Turning Leadership into a Verb 

Power Skills

20220816-DavidMantica by Tord Ronn



Leadership is no longer about the presence of a positional powerbase. One must start thinking in terms of self-leadership, and how to utilize the referent powerbase, shifting his or her concept of leadership from a noun to a verb. Through a focus on the details of Adaptive Leadership, this program will show individuals how to build the skills necessary to properly utilize Adaptive techniques.  

Adaptive Leadership was developed out of Harvard University, specifically around how human psychology, evolutionary biology, and behavioral economics impact leadership when faced with the fast-paced and ever-present change of today’s world. 

An Adaptive leader must change their approach to problem solving, testing, communicating, and executing. These individuals must understand the implications of their work on the overall system, and they must constantly filter their work based on the value of the outcomes produced. 

Innovation professionals are beginning to find themselves asked to support the development of the “future state,” and be the trusted advisors to ensure the value of that “future state” is properly defined. Adaptive Leadership skills have proven to be a critical tool in ensuring success for innovation professionals. 

You will learn 

  • The critical elements of defining value 
  • 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 analysis work
