The best way to keep being successful, is to keep adapting as change occurs. Adaptive leadership is an approach ideally suited to leading in complex, challenging and fast-changing situations. It is a set of tools, and a mindset, that we can help you learn and master.
Immunity to Change is an approach to executive coaching. ITC focuses specifically on turning behaviours that we struggle to change into behaviours that we can deploy effectively. Typical “Achilles heel” behaviours that may have been resistant to change include delegating effectively; handling conflict; initiating difficult conversations; overcoming imposter syndrome; and building trust and empathy with others.
Adult development theory helps leaders who want their people to take more responsibility or be more autonomous. It describes four world views. At any one time, a human being will hold one of these world views. Some world views limit how much self-direction people are able to take on. So, by moving to other world views, people can increase their ability to self-direct and be autonomous.
We have been trained directly in Adaptive Leadership by Ronald Heifetz (Harvard Kennedy School); in Immunity to Change by Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey (Harvard Graduate School of Education) and in Adult Development Theory by Jennifer Garvey-Berger.
