Our Signature Program uses the Adaptive Leadership framework designed to help decision-makers develop their capacity to be effective leaders by designing and driving meaningful transformation for the purpose of future-proofing their organizations and communities.
Developed at the Harvard Kennedy School, the Adaptive Leadership framework challenges mid-to senior-level professionals to think and engage in the mindset and process of continuous organizational change and renewal. In developing the capacity for adaptive leadership and strategic foresight, participants will lead in a way that generates value across different sectors and disciplines and gain the critical skills needed for solving complex organizational problems. The program helps participants think deeply and broadly about their position of influence, and supports decision makers who are going through such leadership initiatives as guiding their organization through the human challenges of digital transformation or business model redesign; as well as decision makers building a leadership pipeline, managing a multigenerational workforce, and shaping a vibrant organizational culture.
Participants will engage in plenary sessions, professional development sessions, interactive workshops, and case discussions with professors or teaching fellows from Harvard University and other leading institutions.
Whatever your organization’s specific challenges are, the purpose of a learning intervention is to increase your chances of survival and growth. The Signature Program is an emerging and senior leadership program to help companies examine its past legacies and then respond proactively towards creating a dynamic future.
