Building Adaptive Capacity

METHODOLOGY

Implement the ideas, frameworks and strategies to face your current challenges. Simply put, Adaptive Capacity is about awareness and adjustment. Said  differently, it is about expanding the diagnosis of what needs to evolve, identifying where change is possible and determining what capacity is needed to deliver results. Once the diagnostic is complete, the next phase is applying the competency to mobilize and deliver on the required changes.

OUTCOMES

  • Defined personal growth areas

  • Identified mobilization strategies for key actors

  • Reframed adaptive challenges

  • Internalized Adaptive Leadership frameworks and skills

“Adaptive Capacity is being viable today and future-ready for tomorrow.”
