Leadership Workshops


Open Enrollment: Learning to Lead Adaptively February 2015

The program is open to the public in the private, non-profit and government sectors.

This is an intensive two-day workshop offered to executives and managers seeking to build their own and their organization’s leadership capacity. CLA is committed to making the framework and skills of Adaptive Leadership available to anyone advocating for or leading change during these challenging times.  Through a combination of case studies, discussions, small group work and guided reflection, participants will learn the strategies and skills of Adaptive Leadership, such as how to:

  • “Get on the balcony,” orchestrate conflict, think politically, give the work back, and other Adaptive Leadership behaviors;
  • Develop capacity to face uncertainty about personal approaches and styles;
  • Effectively manage deep value conflicts within the organization and its people;
  • Strengthen their ability to face internal resistance while implementing major changes; and
  • Manage their personal vulnerabilities, care for themselves, and sustain their spirit.

Whether you tend to play it safe or are an inveterate risk taker, Learning to Lead Adaptively will give you the useful insights and practical behaviors you need to help you lead change more quickly and more successfully, and to help you keep your own head above the often turbulent waters of exercising leadership.

Who is Learning to Lead Adaptively for?

Learning to Lead Adaptively participants represent a wide variety of organizations, functional areas and leadership experiences.  They include:

  • Individuals who feel thwarted in the attempt to lead their organization through change;
  • Teams wrestling with implementing or accelerating change initiatives;
  • Leadership development professionals who want to know how to bring the strategies and skills of Adaptive Leadership to their communities; and
  • People who seek to enhance their own capacities for exercising leadership.

The program is held in major cities at different times during the year and enrollment is limited. Participants come individually and in teams from corporate, non-profit, and public sectors and from many countries in addition to the US.

Leading Adaptive Change in Healthcare

Overview:

With the rollout of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the healthcare sector is in a state of unprecedented flux. Organizations must drive out inefficiencies, increase quality and access, shift toward patient-centric models and increase their focus on population health – significant challenges by any account, but even more so for a system wrought with fragmentation. Those organizations who are best able to collaborate across silos, develop an experimental mindset and tap the energy and passion which initially drove their people into this type of work, will prove most adaptable.

Leading Adaptive Change in Healthcare is an intensive two-day session designed to provide managers and executives with the tools to thrive in this dynamic healthcare environment. Adaptation requires the development of observation and reflection skills, the capacity to generate multiple interpretations and the ability to plan deliberate interventions. You will gain and apply these skills to a critical business challenge and leave equipped to work more strategically across your organization in order to make immediate impact.

The program is open to the public in the private, non-profit and government sectors.

Objectives:

CLA is committed to making the framework and skills of Adaptive Leadership available to anyone advocating for or leading change during these challenging times in healthcare. Through a combination of case studies, discussions, small group work and guided reflection, you will learn the strategies and skills of Adaptive Leadership, such as how to:

  • Effectively diagnose the dynamics within the healthcare system and your organization
  • Understand and interpret your own default behaviors and the way you participate in conversations and relationships
  • Effectively manage deep value conflicts within your organization and its people
  • Apply a proven leadership framework to a current leadership challenge your team is facing to move beyond gridlock and enable your team to make progress
  • Strengthen your ability to face internal resistance while implementing major changes
  • Build deep networks of support with peers in the healthcare arena in order to open dialogue and push collaboration and innovation forward
  • Manage your personal vulnerabilities, care for yourself and sustain your spirit

Is Leading Adaptive Change in Healthcare Right for You?
Leading Adaptive Change in Healthcare participants represent a wide variety of sub-sectors, organizations, functional areas and management experiences across the health and human services sector.  This might include but is not limited to:

  • Administrators of clinical, educational, research, insurance and regulatory organizations
  • Clinicians from all health and human service professions
  • Members of advocacy and health policy organizations (including patient groups)
  • Individuals in formal positions of authority in health and human service organizations
  • Individuals committed to fostering change without formal authority in health and human service organizations
  • Leadership development professionals who want to know how to bring the strategies and skills of Adaptive Leadership to their communities
