Adaptive Leadership & Influencing Skills
In times of disruptive change, leaders must think differently about how they lead. Doing more with less and adapting to change on the fly is not optional. Leaders must raise the bar, tackle underperformance, upgrade talent, and create a sustained high performance culture.
Getting tough issues on the table where they can be solved is critical, whether it’s leveling with people about their performance, pushing good performers beyond their best, naming the elephant in the room, all must be accomplished while driving engagement and inspiring action. This is adaptive leadership.
The Influence Workshop
A 5 session, practical introduction to Adaptive Leadership. This insightful, interactive session focuses on building skills to enable leaders at all levels to communicate, create alignment, build teams, and coach in a rapidly changing environment. The program establishes a framework for new communication norms that drive learning and dialogue
How It Works
Work on What's Important to You
Over half of the time in The Influence Workshop is dedicated to solving participants’ real issues. Participants bring cases representing a significant and relevant challenge to which they have applied their best thinking and have been unable to solve. Much of the workshop is spent applying new thinking and skills to these challenges.
Create Lasting Results
We work with your team up front to understand your business, your issues, and the results you need. The program is tailored to ensure measurable results which builds confidence in new skills and ensures they will be used over and over and become embedded in your company’s culture. Our pocket-sized card decks are a take away that can also be used to reinforce tools and skills long after the program.
Create New Team Norms for Communication
Corporate teams need to unravel real (and often difficult) issues that hinder results. This requires an environment where candor is the norm and hidden agendas are few. An environment that fosters discussion, push-back, and honest feedback; where everyone’s point of view is heard and the best solutions emerge from collaboration. Our programs create this with an impactful team development experience. Your team will get to know each other better while working together to solve big challenges in a new way. The experience will create new norms for how people are expected to raise and discuss the real issues that drive your business.
