Adaptive Leadership

About this resource

In this project-based course, you’ll identify a leadership challenge in your life and use the tools and techniques of Adaptive Leadership to make progress on it. The Adaptive Leadership approach was developed at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and equips people with the skills needed to lead change in times of uncertainty in an increasingly complex world.

You will learn to:

  • Find the root cause of a stubborn and recurring challenge in your organisation, team or community
  • Partner with people in positions of authority or power
  • Recognise your role in the challenge and use your own power to get to a solution
  • Lead adaptively amidst times of mistrust, resistance, conflict and distress

This course is free and 8-week long. The next edition starts on February 16 2021.
