Adaptive Leadership (013)

This is the final section of the adaptive leadership series. Some may find it somewhat difficult to integrate into their leadership practice if they do not have the benefit of the earlier sections. Nonetheless, this section consolidates the leadership strategies from the earlier sections and incorporates the adaptive leadership philosophy when making decisions and working with the team to assure excellence performance and outcomes. Understanding that philosophy rests on a clear commitment to superior functioning and an unflagging faith in each member of the team.

 

Please listen and take the adaptive leadership philosophy to heart. It becomes who you are and how you do what you do, no exceptions, no excuses.

Misunderstandings, Power, Inclusion & Fire Prevention

 

In this episode in our adaptive leadership series, focus is on handling misunderstandings, the use of power and control, inclusion and avoiding the situation where the leader spends most of his or her time putting out fires. Sure, it is complicated but adaptive leadership is far from simple. May I suggest that you go back and listen to the earlier episodes if you have not already considered them. Once you have done that, this episode will more clearly fit into your adaptive leadership tool box.

Adaptive Leadership (007)

My father used to tell me that he never learned anything while he was talking. Yes, listen and learn was his technique for adding what others know to what he knows. At the end of the day, this was the best if not the only way to get smarter. This included seeing things from the point of view of other people and never assuming that his perspective was complete or even the best view point. This and other adaptive leadership tips are here for you in this episode of Audio Tidbits in the leadership category. As Dad liked to say, listen and learn.

Adaptive leadership is not only needed, it is required. Please listen to learn what adaptive leadership is all about. The series has thirteen episodes. This episode is where the discussion starts.
