About the course

Lead­ing effec­tive­ly and inclu­sive­ly in today’s increas­ing­ly polar­ized world requires both head and heart. Build­ing your team’s — and your — abil­i­ty to adapt to unfore­seen real­i­ties also requires you to hold steady dur­ing peri­ods of intense change. This course uses an adap­tive lead­er­ship frame­work to strength­en your abil­i­ty to tack­le com­plex prob­lems in your pro­fes­sion­al and per­son­al worlds. Adap­tive lead­er­ship is a crit­i­cal tool and skill set for those look­ing to dri­ve sys­temic change while being account­able to their own val­ues and goals.

Par­tic­i­pants will engage in pub­lic learn­ing to test the adap­tive diag­nos­tic process togeth­er. Pub­lic learn­ing is a col­lab­o­ra­tive process where we use the class itself as a case study, pay­ing atten­tion to how author­i­ty and lead­er­ship are alive in the class­room, and using class­room engage­ment itself as a test­ing ground for these new lead­er­ship approaches.

What you will learn

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Distinguish between technical problems and adaptive challenges.
  • Apply an adaptive leadership diagnostic to a leadership challenge or failure.
  • Understand the role of disequilibrium in mobilizing systems to change.
  • Reflect on their own leadership competencies by “getting on the balcony.”
  • Identify their loyalties and how it impacts their leadership and decision-making.

Take note:

  • This course will start with a weekend of intensive learning and then meet on Tuesdays for four consecutive weeks.
  • Students will be placed in peer groups and be responsible for holding weekly one-hour peer group consultations through the duration of the course; each group will schedule their own peer group time.
  • In each class, roughly two-thirds of the time will be allocated to discussing a previously assigned reading; the last third will be allocated to a group diagnosis of a student's case.
