Adapt with Cru’s free resources

In this section of the website, you’ll find a number of free resources designed to help support the Adapt phase of your leadership work. The resources here will also help you gain a fuller understanding of Cru’s Adapt, Grow, Achieve leadership development process.

The first challenge of Adapt, Grow, Achieve leadership is learning to adapt to complex, challenging situations.

The Adapt leadership phase is diagnostic. It requires you to diagnose accurately your professional and personal leadership challenges. We’ve found that most failures of leadership stem from inadequate attention to the Adapt phase of leadership work. It’s like medicine. Without a sound diagnosis, there won’t be an effective cure.

Whatever your learning style, we hope that you will find something that you find engaging and useful. We will keep growing and evolving these resources. Stay updated by signing up for our monthly newsletter.

The Cru Book – Adapt, Grow, Achieve: Equip Yourself for the Challenges of Leadership

We’ve written a leadership book that’s short and practical. You can read it comfortably in under two hours. In it, you’ll find Cru’s framework for thinking about effective leadership, together with numerous leadership stories, strategies and practical tools. It’s available through all global Amazon stores, and you can download a free sample to read on the Kindle app (available for laptops, tablets, smart phones and e-book readers).

The Cru Newsletter

We publish a free monthly newsletter to support Cru’s community of leaders. We curate thought provoking ideas and the latest, best writing about leadership. We also share the latest, evidence-based leadership practices that you can implement immediately. Sign up for the newsletter here.

The Cru Blog

We’re here to support you, not bombard you! We blog 2 or 3 times a month. We write medium length thought pieces about leadership as seen through Cru’s primary lenses of Adaptive Leadership, Immunity to Change coaching, adult development and adult learning.

The Cru Video Library

You can view our short leadership videos on the Cru YouTube Channel. Our video shorts cover both the outer and inner work of leadership, and we’ll be growing the video library every month.
