Leadership is no longer about having a positional powerbase. You must start thinking in terms of self-leadership and utilizing the referent powerbase, aka making leadership into a verb not a noun. This program will dig into the details of what Adaptive Leadership is and how to build the skills to utilize its techniques.

Adaptive Leadership was developed out of Harvard University specifically around dealing with human psychology, evolutionary biology, and behavioral economics. An Adaptive leader must change their approach to problem solving, testing, communicating, and executing. They must understand the implications of their work on the overall system and must constantly filter their work based on the value of the outcome it produces.
These skills are critical for the future of Business Analysis especially as the BA is being increasing asked to support the development of the "future state", and be the trusted advisor to ensure the value of that "future state" is properly defined.

Attendees will learn

  • The critical elements of defining value
  • Systems thinking and dealing with adaptive challenges over technical issues
  • The mind set required for adaptive leaders
  • The work approach and critical concepts
  • Bridging adaptive leadership to your analysis work

Webinar details will be sent to registered attendees in advance of the meeting.
