    Some of the challenges we face right now are new. Some challenges are in part the unresolved dilemmas of old ways, combined with legacies of analog processes, patriarchy, and individualism.

    Many of our new challenges are not going to be solved by authoritarian expertise, even though we might hope that if the right SME could only be found, our problems would be solved.

    These are what we call adaptive challenges, they are gaps generated by bold aspirations amid challenging realities. As leaders and influencers, we need to build new ways of being and responding beyond our current repertoires of available know-how.

    This workshop offers a leadership perspective emphasizing experimentation with new forms of communication, new relationships, and collaboration that helps develop solutions that surpass today’s current competence.

    Intended Audience

    Everyone who is interested in:

    ·       Mobilizing people to tackle tough challenges and thrive

    ·       Learning how to support progress through adaptive challenges

    ·       Inspiring themselves and others to a higher standard

    During this workshop, participants will have an opportunity to:

    ·       Distinguish between adaptive and technical challenges and their respective leadership responses

    ·       Explore the role of supportive conflict in adaptive contexts

    ·       Analyze a current challenge through the adaptive leadership framework
