Adaptive Leadership Intensive

Tools and awareness to navigate complex problems and change

About the Training

Polykala’s adaptive leadership training uses experiential and improvisational learning methods to equip you with the tools and awareness to tackle tough challenges and navigate you and your team’s way through complexity and uncertainty – we call these Adaptive problems.

Adaptive situations include ongoing challenges in your organisation where a number of solutions have already been attempted, cultural issues; such as an ‘unhealthy’ dynamic brewing within your team, or a significant external change which impacts your industry or sector. This training will introduce a set of skills and capacities to observe yourself and your context with greater clarity and take meaningful and necessary action. All Polykala training programs are delivered by two or more trainers this means you get more one-one attention and enables us to ‘read the room’ with greater sensitivity.

This approach to leadership training privileges open-mindedness, curiosity and flexibility over subject matter expertise, experience and track records. It’s a different way of doing ‘leadership’.

Key components

  • 1. Core Adaptive Leadership theory.
  • 2. Know your tuning - how your experience, personality and values enables and disables your leadership capacity.
  • 3. Learn and reflect by applying the ideas to your context, so that you can integrate them into your workplace and community.

"I was looking for a leadership program that was about more than learning bullet points and that’s exactly what I got. I feel that I came away with a resilience and leadership agility that will stick with me and be applicable in many situations."
Jessica Christiansen-Franks - CEO & Co-Founder, Neighbourlytics
