Adaptive Leadership

Adaptive Leadership

15 August 2017, Central London - facilitated by Professor Derek Mowbray


The involvement of the workforce in the way an organisation is managed and the key decisions it takes is a recipe for success. It leads to greater engagement by the workforce in the organisation, with the consequences of a sense of ‘ownership’ and influence.

Achieving this requires a form of leadership known as Adaptive Leadership - a style which recognises the value of individual employees and their contribution to the success of the business or service.

This style of leadership has a profound impact on the wellbeing and performance of the workforce. It is a style that helps to embed an adaptive and positive work culture into organisations and encourages sharing responsibility for the future success of the organisation/team/department/group/ with everyone, so that everyone has a stake and is expected to make a positive contribution to future success.


The challenge – adapting to internal and external pressures for change

The principal components of Adaptive Leadership:

  • Shared responsibility for the success of the organisation amongst all the workforce
  • Exposure of ‘Elephants in the Room’ and addressing them robustly
  • Independent thinking by the whole workforce is expected
  • Institutionalised learning is embedded in daily processes
  • A focus on Adaptive Leadership – what it is, why implement it and what are the benefits?
  • The Adaptive Leadership Questionnaire
  • Exercises in Adaptive Leadership
  • Implementing Adaptive Leadership.

The six building blocks to Adaptive Leadership - self, self as leader, followers, emerging leaders, context, judges.

The attributes of Adaptive Leaders - attentiveness, attitude, humour, encouragement, conflict management, reliability, intellectual flexibility, humanity.


  • Participants will be introduced to the characteristics of Adaptive Leadership and the impact of this style of leadership on the wellbeing and performance of employees and managers.
  • Participants will be able to practice applying this style to their own circumstances.
