Presentation Title: Adaptive Leadership and the BA: Digging into the Skills, Tools and Techniques
Speaker Name: David Mantica
Leadership is no longer about having a positional powerbase. You must start thinking in terms of self-leadership and utilizing the referent powerbase. On top of this the rapid pace of change, disruption and complexity is requiring a comprehensive change in how you think at work, how you conduct your work and how you define the value of what you do. Adaptive Leadership is 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. We will dig deeper into the skills, tools and techniques needed to successfully practice Adaptive Leadership to infuse your BA skills with ability to handle the complexity and complicated nature of our uncertain future.
