“Be flexible like trees; when the wind blows bend, but do not break.” - Matshona Dhliwayo

This Oxford Adaptive Leadership training course is a critical skill set for anyone looking to drive change in an increasingly complex world of conflicting demands and constantly changing priorities. Adaptive leadership uses practices and strategies designed to accomplish significant change and develop the sustainability required in challenging, competitive, and complex environments.

The skills needed to focus on the cognitive problems at hand, with a view of finding solutions to correct the issues in the shortest possible time and in the most effective way are where you need adaptive leadership expertise. This training course will develop the practices and techniques to ensure any team member within the organization can become an effective adaptive leader.
