101: What in the world is Adaptive Leadership?

Part of a four-part webinar series on Adaptive Leadership within Organizational Change presented by EmcArts

Tuesday, September 12, 2-3pm

In the first of this series, we give an overview of the fundamental tenants of Adaptive Leadership and how we can begin to build the capacity to lead innovation and adaptive change in our organizations. We will walk through the history and norms of the arts and social field and the practice of getting on the balcony to see patterns to help us understand the complex environment we operate in today.

You’ll love this webinar if you’re yearning to better understand why your organizational challenges seem more intractable than ever before and how adaptive leadership can make for more resilient organizations that generate greater public impact and value. At the end of this webinar, you’ll become familiar with the essential definitions, frameworks and a few tools EmcArts has used over the past decade to help leaders navigate their complex challenges.

What is this?

This webinar is part of a four-part series presented by EmcArts on Adaptive Leadership within Organizational Change. Meant for individuals and leaders within organizations in the arts and cultural sector interested in organizational innovation, we focus on the fundamental tenants of Adaptive Leadership in organizations and how they go hand-in-hand with adaptive change work within the arts and cultural sector. In a world where individuals, organizations, and communities face rapidly changing circumstances and uncertainty, adaptive leadership is vital in developing the adaptive capacity of organizations as they respond to complex challenges. You have likely engaged with many of these principles already - this series offers a framework and shared language to ground your work and help to navigate challenges which you might face within your organization. Each 60-min interactive webinar will be led by Managing Director Melissa Dibble and will feature organizational leaders and special guests who have successfully engaged innovation and adaptive change in the arts.
