Being a “leader” is not about a position or a title. Leadership is something that you exercise, that you practice, that you do. In fact, the most critical organizational challenges are those that cannot be resolved by dictate from the boss or fixed through technical proficiency. Critical challenges require adaptation, experimentation and change. Critical challenges require leaders from within all areas of the organization to carefully assess and identify the ways that organizational habits, routines, norms and culture are inhibiting the mission. This workshop will be a hands-on effort to identify and grapple with the adaptive challenges your organization is facing. Participants will be given the opportunity to work towards diagnosing their most critical organizational challenges and will be provided with tools and techniques to experiment with solutions, regardless of formal authority or position.

Dr. Jake Messersmith, executive director of Business Graduate Programs, designed this workshop for anybody who wants to learn more about being an adaptive leader. You do not need to be in a position of formal authority or high up in the organizational hierarchy to attend. Every organization faces adaptive challenges. The principles studied and applied will be helpful to anyone looking to learn more about the frameworks and tools that help individuals, teams and organizations adapt to dynamic environments.

Cost is $345, includes lunch and parking validation.
