Adaptive Leadership

For Managers, Supervisors and Leaders

(2 to 5 days)

This highly interactive course is specifically designed for teams to develop practical skills for diagnosing challenges, exercising effective leadership even in risky situations, and avoiding unnecessary penalties for relevant effort. Founded by Rudi’s mentor, Dr. Ronald Heifetz at Harvard University, this material has repeatedly won the alumni award for  ‘Most Valuable Course’ at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.

In this course, participants analyze:

  • The risks of leadership

  • How to respond to these dangers

  • Staying on course when the going gets tough

We do this by drawing on materials from psychology, philosophy, business management, and, most importantly, adaptive leadership. Significant emphasis is placed on examining:

  • Participants’ actual leadership challenges – to analyse areas of strength and potential blind spots

  • Personal ambitions and drive – to identify strengths and areas of vulnerability

  • The interpersonal dynamics in the class – to illuminate tendencies participants’ have that influence their ability to exercise effective leadership in other environments



  • Enhanced communication, teamwork and problem solving skills

  • Improved relationships with employees

  • Greater self & leadership awareness

  • Decreased time & effort spent solving people problems

  • Higher energy levels

  • Increased ability to learn from a rapidly changing environment
