Adaptive Leadership Seminar Summary:

Most of us think of leadership as having a position of power and good leadership as a set of qualities we must master. Adaptive Leadership, however, offers strategies to effectively lead change no matter who you are or where you are on the ladder. This seminar will offer an overview of this model: clarifying a new definition of leadership, differentiating between types of challenges, identifying pressures behind resistance, and experiencing more effective interventions. Participants will leave with new strategies for improving their leadership capabilities in their institution or organization.
