- Master new tools and frameworks to improve the understanding of the organizational environment, identify real challenges and plan forward.
Number of participants: up to 200
Introduction of Adaptive Leadership Theory:
To build a solid base, the first part of the session will walk participants through the concepts from the Adaptive Leadership framework developed by Prof. Ronald Heifetz
Self Discovery and Connection with Others:
Through different prompts and experiential exercises, participants will be asked not to share certain identifying details and this restriction is intended to remove comfortable reference points and routine discussion topics from the start, while simultaneously creating a safe environment to deeply connect with others.
Analysis of an adaptive challenge:
Working closely with the organization, the facilitator will guide participants to analyze and dissect a specific problem through the lens of the framework previously taught. During the session, participants will identify and map factions, understand the challenges hindering performance, the causes of resistance to change and hidden dynamics. At the end of the session, participants will have a clear understanding of the problem and will be equipped with the tools to overcome the fear of change successfully and become change enablers
Participants will reflect on the concepts learned to create concrete steps to implement them in their organization and community.
