In this breakfast session, our expert course instructor Andrew Lee will explore the concept of Adaptive Leadership, focusing on the complex challenges leaders face in today’s rapidly evolving world.

The session will delve into why challenges that require people to let go of entrenched beliefs, habits and behaviours and adapt to changing circumstances need a fundamentally different leadership approach. We will also explain why, in this post-COVID hybrid workplace, many traditional leadership assumptions fail to engage as well as they need to.

Key Discussion Points:

  1. Understanding Adaptive Leadership: What sets adaptive challenges apart from straightforward challenges and why they demand a different leadership approach.
  2. Letting Go of Entrenched Beliefs: Exploring the importance of breaking free from traditional leadership assumptions and embracing more progressive and flexible mindsets.
  3. Navigating Change and Uncertainty: Strategies for leaders to navigate through uncertainty and positively impact their teams during times of transformation.
  4. Fostering a Culture of Adaptability: How leaders can foster an organizational culture that encourages continuous learning, innovation, and adaptability.
  5. The Role of Resilience: Highlighting the significance of resilience as an essential quality for leaders to handle adaptive challenges and maintain engagement.
  6. Learning from Nature: Drawing inspiration from Darwin’s principle of evolution and understanding how adaptability plays a crucial role in leadership success.
  7. Practical Tools for Adaptive Leaders: Equipping leaders with practical tools and techniques to approach adaptive challenges with confidence and creativity.

The breakfast session will be interactive and engaging, providing you with valuable insights and actionable takeaways to enhance your leadership skills in a rapidly changing world. You will have the opportunity to share your experiences, exchange ideas, and collectively develop strategies for driving positive organizational change through adaptive leadership.

Join us for this thought-provoking breakfast session and learn how to lead with agility and resilience, while empowering your teams to thrive amidst uncertainty and change.
