Public Program: Learning to Lead Adaptively
Learning to Lead Adaptively: Dubai, March 5-6
Public Program: Learning to Lead Adaptively

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.

Learning to Lead Adaptively: Dubai, March 5-6

We are living through a period of great uncertainty, where change is a constant and the future is unknown. In the face of such competing and often overwhelming demands, executives must initiate new ways of working, and organizations need to adapt so as to drive change rather than being driven by it. This public program, facilitated by Ghaleb Darabya and Marty Linsky, will focus on the skills of adaptive leadership and building participants’ ability to assess and work through the most important issues they face.

During this Program, you will:
•  Internalize a new set of ideas and tools to mobilize consequential change.
•  Apply Adaptive Leadership concepts directly to a current business challenge.
•  Develop a portfolio of new strategies to tackle your toughest issues.
•  Learn to diagnose the adaptations and competencies needed to capture emerging opportunities.

After this Program, you will:
•  Gain new tools and strategies to move your organization away from the status quo.
•  Rejuvenate hope and excitement for what is possible.
•  Make more progress that you have so far on the most important and difficult challenges facing you and your organization.

The program is different. No PowerPoint. No lectures. We will use your issues, your challenges, your opportunities as the center of the work. You are the curriculum. Learning to lead adaptively will enable you to reflect on your assumptions, perspectives and values, and encourage you to consider how reframing your values and beliefs can spur change and nurture progress. You will be expected to look beyond quick, technical short-term fixes toward organizational challenges using new diagnostic skills and creative action steps that flow out of redefined perspectives.

This program will cost $3500 per participant.
