Yes, adaptive capacity, which includes such critical skills as the ability to understand context and to recognize and seize opportunities, is the essential competence of leaders. - Warren Bennis

Adaptable Leadership™, LLC partners with corporations to develop leaders prepared for the unknown challenges of tomorrow. Our unique methodology for leadership adaptability was developed from research conducted primarily with the most elite unit of Special Forces. These soldiers are deployed on classified missions that require adapting to significant changes to ensure that missions are accomplished successfully and the team returns home alive. Our founder, a psychologist who spent an entire career devoted to Human Performance Management, worked to develop and train Adaptable Leadership™ in these military units.

Leadership training is widely available today. The retiring baby boomer population has left Corporate America with weak leadership bench strength. The American Society of Training and Development says that Leadership Training is the number one spending area in corporate training. There is a clear understanding that improving your capabilities of your leadership team correlate to an improvement in company performance. Simultaneously there are challenges that make business success even more difficult. In an era of globalization, technology advancements and increased competition the blueprint for success is constantly changing. What worked to lead a company to success in the past may be the last strategy to implement in the future.

Alvin Toffler said, “The illiterates of the 21st Century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.” Organizational success is dependent on radical transformation, not once or twice, but continuously. The problem is most leadership courses teach individuals what to think not how to think. In a rapidly changing operating environment it is critical that the leaders on the ground understand how to think so that they can adapt to bring success.

Adaptable Leadership™, LLC is committed to developing leaders that understand how to think. Our training programs are designed to prepare leaders for the unknown challenges of tomorrow.
